Editors’ Notes The People’s Key is simultaneously more scaled-down and more expansive than its predecessor, Cassadaga, with a smaller cast of characters and a more pointed exploration of indie rock's electric side. “Jejune Stars” and “Triple Spiral” feature sophisticated drumming, adventurous use of guitars from bandleader Conor Oberst, and alluring moments of sweeping synths care of keyboard master Nate Walcott. Tracks like “Ladder Song” and “Approximate Sunlight” are stripped-down, pensive reminders of the passion that made Oberst great to begin with.
