..yesterday I got Conor Oberst’s latest contribution to the world, Outer South, from his current band, Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band.

Mystic Valley

I hadn’t listened to any of their stuff until now, and I have to say I am very, VERY impressed. Its completely different from the music of Bright Eyes (Except maybe for some of the songs on Cassadaga).  Thats not saying I don’t like Bright Eyes, they’re one of my favorite bands, but its nice to hear something slightly more upbeat from Oberst’s signiture voice. Its very folky, and quite bluesy at times. The comparison’s of Oberst song writing to Bob Dylan have never been more fitting..

Happy listening.
