USA, 2005, indietronica / indie pop
Bright Eyes – Digital Ash in a Digital Urn: This was released simultaneously with I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning and was promptly overshadowed by that folkier album. You listen to Wide Awake during the day, and once the full lights of the nighttime city come on, you thrown Digital Ash on. Oberst strikes me as the kind of guy who fancies himself a seeker, and I sure hope he find what he’s looking for. Anyway, it’s like what Dr. Daniels always used to say: androgyny is a latent function of modernity.
