Booher (ex-Zykos) releasing ‘Funny Tears’ (stream a track ft. Will Sheff)

You might remember the 2000s-era Austin indie rock band Zykos, who not only toured with Okkervil River but had that tour immortalized when Okkervil wrote the song “On Tour With Zykos” for their 2008 album The Stand Ins. Now Mike Booher from that band has a new project simply called Booher, and he’s got a single which features vocals from Okkervil singer Will Sheff. There really isn’t anybody in the world who sounds like Will Sheff, so you know the second he jumps on this thing. And he and Mike sound great together. The song’s called “Pick Up The Robot (Put The Robot Down)” and it’ll appear on Booher’s upcoming album, Funny Tears, but it’s out as a single this week. It comes with the previously-unreleased b-side “I Doubt the End Is Near.” Check out both songs below.

Booher is also playing some SXSW shows next week. His full schedule is below as well.
