Sunrise & Sunset
Bright Eyes - Sunrise, Sunset

It’s a mountain special on shotwithsound as I am planning to climb Snowdon (England & Wales’ largest mountain for my international audience (of one)) tomorrow. Seeing as I’m climbing with Lee – previously featured on shotwithsound here – and Katy (who went uncredited despite modelling here) I thought a photo of the last mountain we climbed would be appropriate.

Having considered various mountain-related songs (River Deep, Mountain High; Ain’t No Mountain High Enough; Mountain Song) I decided to sack it in and actually look at the photo then listen to some music before choosing the temporally appropriate Bright Eyes song Sunrise, Sunset.

Usually on here I try to talk a little about the band I feature, a little about the song, and a little about the picture… But this time, seeing as almost everyone will be aware of the prodigious talents of Omaha’s finest Conor Oberst and his brilliant work under the Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos and Mystic Valley Band monikers, I’m going to let the music do the talking and the picture speak for itself.

One final note though – when this was taken it was the end of a glorious Spanish day: the weather for Snowdon is set to be heavy rain, and gale force winds – so wish us luck!

Strangely Fevers And Mirrors, the album from which Sunrise, Sunset is drawn, isn’t on iTunes (a first?!) but you can buy it from Amazon here.
