Music for Snow

While sequestered outside of Utica, NY during the snow-filled winter of '04 we found strange refuge in the slight six song split EP from Bright Eyes and Neva Dinova entitled One Jug of Wine, Two Vessels. While sequestered today on a snow-packed 11th st. in the East Village, we feel it only appropriate to share the news that Saddle Creek will reissue the aforementioned EP on March 23rd, complete with four new songs. Vocalists Conor Oberst and Jake Bellows each take the lead on two songs. This constitutes the first new Bright Eyes material since 2007's Cassadaga. From the timeless and creaky opener "Tripped" to the longing of "Poison," One Jug... will always hold a special place in our EP collection, and we're more than happy to welcome the 4 new songs to fold. Just as long as they're not too happy-sounding now that Mr. Oberst is all clean and living the dream down Mexico-way.
