Bright Eyes – Neva Dinova

Conor (Bright Eyes) Oberst and Neva Dinova frontman Jake Bellows’ friendship dates back to 1996, but this is the first time they’ve pooled resources. It’s a fascinating union, too?Bellows’ warmly weatherbeaten delivery nuzzling close to the fireside, Oberst’s a blast of cold air. So the former’s “Get Back” shuffles slow before erupting into a folk-shanty canter, while the latter’s melodramatic “Black Comedy” and “I’ll Be Your Friend” ride a wave of chopped guitars, distorted vocals and fat sax breaks. Too short at just over 20 minutes.
