Bright Eyes "Cassadaga" CD


Named for a community for psychics in Central Florida, "Cassadaga" is Conor Oberst's diary in his travels around the country in which he articulates his sense of history in the landscape. Oberst, the fumbling guitarist whose impassioned prose tumbles out under stark stage spotlights, is still recognizable in every track, but the songs are rich with elaborate production, cinema-sized orchestration and, at times, sprawling and almost psychedelic atmospherics.
