[NEW ALBUM] Conor Oberst: Upside Down Mountain
The broody and trembling vocals of Conor Oberst are ones I have long been acquainted with. From his Bright Eyes days, to working with Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley), with The Mystic Valley Band, in Monsters Of Folk or as a solo artist, here is one singer/songwriter that I can comfortably associate with various eras of my own life growing up.
The alt-country/folk/poet/storytelling master is releasing his latest solo album Upside Down Mountain on May 20 via Nonesuch Records. This week, NPR are previewing the album, and from what we have heard so far, it is setting itself up to be one of the soundtracks to our summer here at Willow Wood.
