His politics could not be more misguided but I love Conor Oberst and Bright Eyes. I had the cd ‘Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground’ on major repeat earlier this year and still love every song on it. I recommend you download ‘Will you? You? Will? You? Will? You Will.’ and ‘Lover I don’t have to love’, and though it’s sort of an anti-war song, I love ‘One Foot In Front of the Other’. Unfortunately, Bright Eyes is touring in support of Kerry at the moment so I would wait until after the election to go see them. But don’t let Conor’s young politics get in the way of seeing this otherwise incredible live band.
