Every Day and Every Night

Hauntingly melodramatic, Every Day and Every Night, exhibits Conor Oberst's
coming of age. Steeped in dark image-conjuring words and music, the
folk-acoustic foreground is cloaked in circus sideshow eeriness with loops,
back-masked rhythms n' tones and samples. Disavowing the latest trend in
rural porch Americana albums, Oberst and Co. illuminate the shadow-drenched
urban core following the latest turn-of-the-century. It's all very scary here.
