best indie albums 2008
Originally, Conor Oberst started off in the music world in Bright Eyes and released as many as seven albums, most of them full of 'keeper' music.
Then, in January 2008, following a tour to support the brilliant album Cassadaga, Oberst went to Mexico to record a solo album and "accidentally" ended up forming a band - The Mystic Valley Band. The name of the band, according to the band members in One Of My Kind, came from the Mystic Valley where they were staying and rehearsing.
The documentary release, and an advanced track from next week's release of the band's new album, Outer South, have created a good deal of anticipation among fans. The band is asking people who download the film to make whatever donation they can to a charity of their picking at Cause Cast.

"Nikorette" - Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band from Outer South (May 5th)
Not a bad tune, huh? I still can't get 2008's "Cape Canaveral" out of my head. It's definitely one of Oberst's best songs and it's the opening song in this hour-long and entertaining "rockumentary". Interesting metamorphosis for Conor Oberst in a relatively short period of time.
