Songfacts®:

  • Oberst told NME how he and producer Jonathan Wilson resorted to an emergency hangover kit for this song's instrumentation. He explained. "On the end of 'Night at Lake Unknown' you hear this magical, bubbly sound, and the way we did that is by recording me just dropping Alka-Seltzer into water. That was the first time I ever recorded Alka-Seltzer."
