I saw this on Pitchfork this morning and I said, "DUDE!" Roky Erickson is a music legend, pioneering the psychedelic garage-rock sound with his band 13th Floor Elevators in Austin, TX, in the mid-1960s. Various drug, mental, and legal problems have plagued Erickson for most of his career, and he hasn't published any original music in 14 years. His new album True Love Cast Out All Evil will be released on April 20 on Anti-. My favorite indie rockers Okkervil River back Erickson on this album, and OR lead singer Will Sheff produces. If nothing else, it will a very interesting collaboration.
