One of the things that struck Oberst as he and the band went through twenty-plus years of music is that he may in fact have been writing the same song this whole time. Not sonically, of course, but conceptually.
This last wave contains, in ‘Noise Floor’, early Bright Eyes songs so raw, Oberst never even released them back in the day, as well as, in ‘Cassadaga’ and ‘The People’s Key’, the band’s most polished and sophisticated albums.
When Bright Eyes toured ‘Cassadega’, they performed an epic seven sold-out nights at NYC’s Town Hall. What’s more grown-up rock star than that? And yet ... “Thematically those early songs are not that different than the songs I make now,” Oberst says, shaking his head. “There’s something affirming and disheartening about it. It’s like, have I really changed or grown? But maybe it’s just that I knew what I wanted to write about from the beginning.”
‘Cassadaga’ is available on Yellow double vinyl, ‘Noise Floor (Rarities: 1998-2005)’ is pressed on Champagne Wave coloured double vinyl and ‘The People’s Key’ is on Tangerine Orange vinyl.
The three ‘Companion’ releases are pressed on Opaque Gold vinyl.
