Conor Oberst - Triple J's Album of the Week

This guy Conor Oberst is getting a bashing on triplej at the moment in Australia. His self titled album is triple j's album of this week, and I like it much. Best known for his work with Bright Eyes, he has created an indie gem with a whole bunch of great trax (his guitars sound awesome). Recorded in a temporary studio in a mountain villa somewhere in sunny Mexico with a rag tag backing band (known as the Mystic Valley Band, who will be touring with Conor) what I have heard has been amazing.
I dont know what else to say about this guy, its not usually the style I'm into, but this is well worth a listen

  1. I saw conor oberst at the 930 club in DC, it was really really great!! He was having fun too! I love his songs, very meaningful. He writes interesting lyrics and some of the songs really rock. He sings them with alot of emotion and I've never heard anything like him.
