Austin based indie rock group, Okkervil River, released their fifth album in 2008. It was a second part, to the previous years album, The Stage Names, and continues the themes of pop culture, celebrity suicide, and the chaos and the self deception of the rock and roll lifestyle. Lost Coastlines continues that theme of a band lifestyle, likening it to a treacherous boat at sea. An interesting folky song, diving into the deep waters of an obvious meaningful subject to the artists.
