Conor Oberst - S/T
Conor Oberst is an album by Conor Oberst scheduled to be released on August 5, 2008 by Merge Records.
The album was recorded in Tepoztlan, Morelos, Mexico between January and February of 2008. A temporary studio was created in a mountain villa called Valle Mistico at the outskirts of town. Conor Oberst was produced by Conor Oberst and engineer and long-time associate Andy LeMaster. A special band was assembled for the recording, known amongst themselves and to friends as The Mystic Valley Band. It was there at Valle Mistico that Conor and the band lived and worked for that time in near perfect harmony, often unaware of the hour or the day. The result is his first solo album in thirteen years, following Water (1993), Here’s to Special Treatment (1994) and The Soundtrack to My Movie (1995). In that time he has recorded and performed in many bands and musical projects including Commander Venus, Park Ave., Desaparecidos, and most notably Bright Eyes.
