Bright Eyes #8
On Day 1 of Winter 2010/11, Saddle Creek premiered the first sampling of new Bright Eyes music. The track, #2 from the band's upcoming The People's Key (Feb. 15, 2011), is very intriguing and eclectic. At first, "Shell Games" appears to start off just like the average Bright Eyes piece... And then gets interesting roughly a minute in; Making use of heavy guitars, Moog effects, structural shifts/changes, and a catchy chorus. As a nice little pre-holiday treat, Saddle Creek is offering up the track for free via the link below. If you dig it, stop by their official site to view a few cool (all-inclusive) album pre-order packages.
