On January 25th, 2005, the indie folk/rock band Bright Eyes released two albums. One was called I'm Wide Awake It's Morning, and it featured the same folky, almost country sound that they've been putting out for years. The other though, was called Digital Ash In a Digital Urn, and was a much more interesting electronica sound, which is quite experimental for this band. The album was absolutely one of the best of the year, as it featured Oberst's phenomenal songwriting, and incorporated it into this new music. If you've never heard any of this album, Arc of Time is a gooding launching pad, with it's folktronica take and melody.
