No Matter How I May Wish For A Coffin So Clean Or These Trees To Undress All Their Leaves Onto Me...
On his/their third full length release Fever And Mirrors, Conor Oberst and Bright Eyes perfectly captured their own cadence of loose indie rock and shaky, emotional vocals. Wrapped up in a neat, lo-fi package, songs stagger and crash into each other yet manage not to distract the listener from it's underliying pop beauty. The results amount to a catchy collection of elaborate songs that's been perfectly captured on a nickel budget. I've been known to blather on about this band before; hope you all can see why with these selections. For your listening (dis)pleasure:
Bright Eyes: A Spindle, A Darkness, A Fever, And A Necklace
Bright Eyes: A Poetic Retelling Of An Unfortunate Seduction
Bright Eyes: When The Curious Girl Realizes She Is Under Glass
Bright Eyes: The Calendar Hung Itself
