Inherent in youth is a kinetic energy, vitality and passion that has the potential to move masses. Every new generation picks a voice that will offer them something to identify with -- something to prove to them that the crazy things they're feeling and the anger that they're having and the disillusionment that's plaguing them is normal. Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst is that voice. Lifted or The Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground is the latest, most significant release from Oberst and the notable cast of Bright Eyes players. Oberst's mainstay production team of Mike Mogis and Andy Lemaster (Now It's Overhead) lend performances on the record along with other noteworthy Omaha musicians including Todd and Clark Baechle (The Faint), Orenda Fink and Maria Taylor (Azure Ray), Matt Maginn and Clint Schnase (Cursive), and Jiha Lee (The Good Life).
