Bright Eyes – “Happy Accident”

Conor Oberst is all grown up — after listening to Monsters Of Folk you might even think he’s your dad — but Omaha’s favorite indie-rock son still slides into his Bright Eyes angst rather easily. See, for instance, “Happy Accident,” which appears on the reissue of the 2004 One Jug of Wine, Two Vessel six-song Neva Dinova “split” (in stores 3/23, but shipping now via Saddle Creek). As mentioned last month, the 2010 version includes four new collaborative tracks, bringing the count up to 10. “Happy Accidents” and its music box, sensitive lyrics, etc., is one of them, and it wears its vintage Bright Eyes camo well.
