True Love Cast Out All Evil
2010 release that marks the triumphant return of the legendary Roky Erickson, formerly of Psych rockers 13th Floor Elevators. True Love Cast Out All Evil is his first new album in 14 years and was produced by Will Sheff and features his band Okkervil River backing Erickson. The record is comprised largely of unreleased songs that Austin, Texas native Erickson wrote throughout his decades-long career - detailing with heart-breaking candor a harrowing life that has included shock treatment, imprisonment, mental illness, and irreversible loss. With a wisdom that can only be marshaled by someone who has been through all of this, Erickson also interjects the songs with love, hope, and spiritual grace.
