Label: Saddle Creek
America's oldest teenager follows up his 2005 crossover into mass appeal with this rustic indie rock wonder. Cassadaga mixes the Arcade Fire's paranoia with Wilco's Americana and the Beatles experimentalism but it still sounds like vintage Connor Oberst. While the lyrics cower through questions about God, the future and the meaning of it all, the music stands tall on its aching melodies, creamy pop hooks and arm waving choruses. In a perfect world, numbers like "Four Winds" would be shouted out by entire high school football teams. In the actual world, tunes like "Make a Plan to Love Me" and "Coat Check Dream Song" will be quietly savored by students in AP classes across the land.
