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