“Hundreds Of Ways”
Have you heard this new Conor Oberst single?? I was soooo surprised at the tone of the track… upbeat and almost Caribbean-sounding, complete with heavy drum beats and horns. I love it! Oberst will release a solo album in May… I can’t wait to hear more!
Bright Eyes – “Shell Games”
I must admit, I’ve never really liked Bright Eyes much and when I first saw this single was out, I didn’t even bother to listen to it. But I’m glad I did since I actually really like the tune… and I’d also like to be able to keep an open mind with any new material, despite previous notions. I still prefer Conor Oberst with The Mystic Valley Band, but I’ll definitely be checking out the rest of the new Bright Eyes album, The People’s Key, when it comes out in February.
