Bright Eyes
I'm Wide Awake It's Morning

One of the main drawbacks of this job is that every couple of years or so I have to write about a record by Bright Eyes, for the only reason that out of the 3 Norman Records staff, I will be the one who is the least rude. Today I have to write about two new Bright Eyes albums. It must be my lucky...view item »

Conor Oberst
Salutations

Bright Eyes' lead quiverer Conor Oberst's last album Ruminations was a a home produced, stark work featuring just his own voice, guitar and piano. He still wanted to record with a band though and so headed down to Malibu to record Salutations with a full rocking band in tow. This includes band versions of ...view item »

Bright Eyes
Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil

A reissue of Bright Eyes' 2002 full length release, Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil. With equal parts folk and indie, frontman Conor Oberst's authentic and well-crafted songwriting is accompanied by his shaky Nebraska voice and diverse instrumentation including orchestral elements, a roc...view item »

Bright Eyes
Fevers and Mirrors

Most people either love or hate Conor Oberst (singer/songwriter of Bright Eyes). His voice is full of emotion to say the least. Yes, he warbles at times, screams at times, sounds like he's on the verge of tears pretty often. This would probably annoy me but it doesn't because his voice fits his lyrics. There is a sense of put-on and a slight sense ...view item »

Bright Eyes
Digital Ash In A Digital Urn

'Digital Ash In A Digital Urn' is the sister album to the Bright Eyes classic 'I'm Wide Awake It's Morning'. Somewhat out-shined by its counterpart, 'Digital Ash In A Digital Urn' is an electronic affair with loops, drum machines and sampling -- something totally new in the Bright Eyes catalogue. However, as ever with Conor Oberst, he puts ...view item »

Conor Oberst
Ruminations

Conor Oberst, aka Mr. Bright Eyes himself, has a new album of solo work. Ruminations was made according to the classic technique of sealing oneself away alone during the winter, and is a sparse affair involving O...view item »

Bright Eyes
The Studio Albums 2000 – 2011

Here, have a massive motherload of Bright Eyes: six full albums from the era 2000 - 2011, each of them remastered to perfection. That comes to 6 CDs, or a back-breaking 10 LPs if you choose the vinyl box, which also includes photo prints and a new essay on Conor Oberst’s prime project. Limited edi...view item »

Conor Oberst
Hundreds Of Ways / Fast Friends

The first single taken from 2014's excellent Upside Down Mountain, released for Record Store Day in April. Typically Oberst scathing lyrics blended with upbeat sarcastic Johnny Cash-inspired rhythm guitars, and with Swedish duo First Aid Kit providing jaunty backing vocals. Limited edition 7"on Nonesuch. ...view item »

Conor Oberst
Upside Down Mountain

The first time Conor Oberst hit my radar was back in 2005 when, home one night with MTV on in the background, I happened upon the video for the Bright Eyes song ‘Lua’. The starkness of the arrangement; the wobbly cracked-up vocals and the bleak low fi simpli...view item »

Conor Oberst and the Mystic Family Band
One Of My Kind

This is a terrific souvenir of the genesis of what became the Mystic Valley Band. In 2008 Conor Oberst went to Mexico and eventually he and Taylor Hollingsworth (guitar), Macey Taylor (bass), Jason Boesel (drums), Nik Freitas (guitar), and Nate Walcott (organ) recorded the album that was released simply as CONOR OBERST in 2008. (The band later r...view item »

Conor Oberst and the Mystic Family Band
Outer South

Conor Oberst is something short of an Indie God. And like many great artists nowadays, he can never stay in one project for long, for fear of his creativity becoming stale. The Mystic Valley Band could be his best incarnation yet, but shortly after the release of this album, the group announced their disbandment. But hey, at least we got this al...view item »

Conor Oberst
Souled Out

'Souled Out' is the new single by Conor Oberst, Bright Eyes head honcho and all round whinging poet. His strutting sub-blues schtick on this plodding FM radio cop-out makes the rest of the US underground sound like proper groundbreaking and all that. Nobody likes poor Conor in this office and the silly twat is lying in a hammock on his album sleeve...view item »
