Connor Obert and crew can’t be accused of being tight-fisted with previews of the new Bright Eyes record, The People’s Key.
Hot on the heels of ‘Shell Games‘ comes ‘Haile Selassie’, taking its name from long-time Ethiopian Emperor who is perceived as a messianic figure in Jamaica’s Rastafari movement.
With a myriad of differing material to date it’s hard to call anything ‘typical Oberst’, yet that’s the best way to describe this. Lots of overlapping instrumentation, rhythmic riffage and that renowned lyrical prowess.
