Bright Eyes are the Omaha, Nebraska-based band led by lauded songwriter Conor Oberst. Recording from the age of 14, Oberst first reached national, and then international, attention with the release of 2000's Fevers and Mirrors, recorded when he was just 19 years old. Bright Eyes are Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott.
Digital Ash In A Digital Urn is a more produced, band-centric album featuring cameo appearances by Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Conor Oberst takes the opportunity to experiment here. Digital Ash in a Digital Urn sees the Omaha-based leader of Bright Eyes teaming up with a diverse set of musicians that includes Zinner, for a collection of songs that aim to recreate the alien landscapes of Radiohead but more often come off sounding like midperiod Depeche Mode.
