Firewall - Bright Eyes (As heard on The People's Key)
In this latest offering from the Omahan band Bright Eyes, frontman Conor Oberst bravely pushes through the genre boundaries that the rest of his indiefolk - related (ala Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine, Sufjan Stevens) compadres duly follow.
While not straying too far from his usual lamenting, country vibe, Conor's experiments with layered vocal tracks, monologues, and bigger band setups (a departure from the lo-fi guitars and quivering vocals he's known for) result in a darker sound, while still keeping his poetic angst-ridden lyrics intact.
Proof that Bright Eyes isn't content with just another travelin' song.
