Conor Oberst

Conor Oberst - 2008

Conor sheds the “Bright Eyes” moniker on this new album. The most recent “New Dylan” spent some time in Mexico with his new “Mystic Valley Band” and recorded a fabulous country-tinged album that is second only to his superb 2005 release “I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning”. Oberst creates a laid- back vibe on the album, which no doubt is a reflection of his hammock- swaying stay in Mexico. His “Mystic Valley Band” perfectly compliments his lyrical journeys through “Moab”, “Lenders In The Temple”, and “Souled Out!!!”, with bluesy country rock with a touch of punk rock overtones.
