Conor Oberst Melancholy – ‘DOWN IN THE WEEDS, WHERE THE WORLD ONCE WAS’ By BRIGHT EYES

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

6 September 2020

Artist: Bright Eyes (Conor Oberst)
Album: Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was – tenth LP
Released: 21 August 2020

Pitchfork verdict: “Conor Oberst and company have not lost their taste for grandiosity
on their first album in nearly a decade, setting familiar woes against a dazzling collage of sounds… Down in the Weeds, recorded before the global pandemic, suits the daily desolation of lockdown. It also makes me regret that Oberst can’t perform these songs live, where young fans and old could form bonds as lasting with them as with Bright Eyes’ past staples… Running over the same old ground, Bright Eyes have found the same old fears. Wish they were here.”
