Where last year’s ”Don’t Fall in Love With Everyone You See” was a masterpiece of twangy, loping melancholia, the latest by Austin’s Okkervil River is buoyed precariously on a cloud of hope.

FOR RAYMOND CARVER FANS On ”Yellow” (not a Coldplay cover), a narrator pulls his brother from the wreckage of marriage and tries to convince him life doesn’t suck. It’s a scalpel worked deftly into the heart of a heart.
