Every Day and Every Night
Chalk another up to the list of soloist who assume a band name, put out some great music, and live the life of a one man band. Conor Oberst leads a score of other musicians through songs that are well written and strike a chord in the listener. Oberst writes with an honestly harsh poeticism seldom heard in modern rock. Luckily, those who possess this talent use it and this EP is the product of such labours. With song's like "A Line Allows Progress, A Circle Does Not." and "On My Work" Oberst croons on and on about the truths of life in a oddly shaken voice that only helps convey the emotions he feels. Bright Eyes has a bright future.
