Roky Erickson jumps in the Okkervil River

This sounds like it should be, at the very least, interesting, and possibly unmissable:

Legendary musician Roky Erickson triumphantly returns with the release of True Love Cast Out All Evil, his first new album in fourteen years. Produced by Will Sheff, with his band Okkervil River providing the musical backing, the record is largely comprised of unreleased material penned by Austin, Texas, native Erickson throughout the course of his decades-long career.

In the UK, it's coming out on Chemikal Underground on June 7th. Some way off, but it's never too soon to pick out what hat you'll wear down to the record shop to buy something like this.
