4. Bright Eyes, "Lifted" (Saddle Creek)
Young Conor Oberst, from Omaha, captures the freewheelin' spirit of early Dylan as well as anyone, while also managing to remind us of Pavement, Violent Femmes and The Cure. The magnum opus at the end, "Let's Not [Bleep] Ourselves," is my favorite rant of the year.
