Roky Erickson with Okkervil River - True Love Cast Out All Evil (2010)

"Here's a feelgood story for you: The troubled Texas psych legend and former 13th Floor Elevators frontman Roky Erickson is back. Anyone who's seen the documentary You're Gonna Miss Me  knows that this guy has not had an easy life. The image of Erickson, his hair matted and his fingernails long, cranking up several TVs and radios to top volume because the resulting ungodly din was the only way he could fall asleep-- well, he didn't exactly look like someone ready to jump back into a recording studio. So consider his return a happy surprise.
 
This spring, Erickson will release "True Love Cast Out All Evil", his first album of new material in 14 years. Fellow Austinites Okkervil River back him on the album, and Okkervil frontman Will Sheff serves as producer. The album includes found sound and archival recordings from the time Erickson spent confined at a hospital for the criminally insane in the early 70s. Anti- will release the LP in the U.S. on April 20, and the UK release will come on June 7." --Pitchfork
