The former Bright Eyes man is in strikingly unguarded form on his stripped-back new album – a log-cabin confessional solely made-up of voice, piano and harmonica.

You can virtually hear the fire crackling and picture the snow settling as Oberst lays down these songs, full of immediacy and the usual storied impetus. At times it is as if he has gone ‘full-dylan’ with those blasts of harmonica and classic chord progressions, but this is a sound of a man comfortable in his own skin – if not yet at peace with the world. For fans of Oberst and other songwriters in his mould, this might be your new ‘Nebraska’.
