Bright Eyes: 'Four Winds' MP3s

Here's a little something from Bright Eyes upcoming EP, Four Winds, March 6th, which will be followed by the full length, Cassadaga, on April 10th. The track "Smoke Without Fire" shows us Conor Oberst without any vocal affectation, sounding warm and hollow not unlike Bob Dylan on Nashville Skyline, after he quit smoking. M Ward joins in on the song, lending his slow smoky rasp to this quiet lovely track. Ward isn't the only talent making a contribution to the album, also lending helping hands and throats are Gillian Welch and Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Quasi).
