Mills Record Company

Conor assembled a special band in Mexico for this recording, known amongst themselves and to friends as The Mystic Valley Band. Members include Nate Walcott, Jason Boesel, Macey Taylor, Nik Freitas, and Taylor Hollingsworth. The result is his first solo album in thirteen years, following "Water" (1993), "Here's To Special Treatment" (1994), and "Soundtrack To My Movie" (1995). In that time, he's recorded and performed in Commander Venus, Park Ave., Desaparecidos, and most notably Bright Eyes, his main musical vehicle for the past decade.

Reviews:

This appears to be the month for Omaha's finest to hop off of the Saddle (Creek). Even label co-founder Oberst, the precocious, prolific talent behind Bright Eyes and Desaparecidos, is shedding his aliases for a solo effort on Merge. Oberst employs Taylor Hollingsworth on guitar and Macey Taylor on bass here; wonder if his latest sincere folk will recall the cassette-only material he produced as a teen in the mid '90s.
