Featured Band: Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band

Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band on Myspace

Of course you know Conor Oberst from Bright Eyes, and you may have picked up his solo release Conor Oberst which came out last year. The Mystic Valley Band actually backed Oberst on the Conor Oberst record, and the new record Outer South which is due out tomorrow (May 5th) is considered the second record by Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band. The backing band is included in the band name this time, possibly due to the fact that some of the songs on Outer South were reportedly written and even sung by members of the band other than Conor Oberst.

They will be playing a free show at Battery Park in NYC on July 4th with Jenny Lewis.
