Bright Eyes recently taped a live in-studio set for KCRW, which was broadcast on Tuesday afternoon. If you missed it, you not only missed Conor Oberst, you also missed the other members of this installment of the Bright Eyes collective:
Mike Mogis: Guitar / Mandolin/ Pedal Steel / Dobro
Nate Walcott: Trumpet / Nord / Piano
Jake Bellows: Guitar / Bass / Vocals
Rayche Bloomberg: Drums / Ukelelaele/ Vocals
M. Ward: Guitar / Acoustic / Harp / Vocals
Anton Patzner: Fiddle
Listen to M. Ward's soothing, melancholy timbre blend with the southern guitar twang on Smoke Without Fire. As expected, Conor and all vocalists ooze confidence and sincerity as they sing their stories.
