I will never get over how terrible this band name is. It’s like the punchline of a bad joke or something. Anyway- the gruesome threesome: Conor Oberst, M Ward and Jim James (with help from Mike Mogis) just put up a free download of a song, “Say Please.” It’s kind of boring and the vocals are very whiny. (Not to mention the ill-devised guitar solo, which is really screechy….) Please Please go back to Bright Eyes Conor? Anyone agree? At least that whinyness is serious and depressing and not masquerading as alt-country. Get it here.
