New Conor Oberst: Governor’s Ball


Conor Oberst- Governor’s Ball

Another preview from Cone’s upcoming solo album uıɐʇunoɯ uʍop ǝpısdn and, it as you would expect- nice and perfect. There’s a little musical experimentation here without the unique aspects of Bright Eyes‘ final offering The People’s Key but off kilter none the less and you know, he knows what he’s doing. You might say it’s not as folky as what has swathed his solo efforts in the past but there are distinctive aspects that are undeniably such.

It remains to be seen what path he will be taking music wise from now on without his former moniker. With any other artist, them playing under another name wouldn’t be a big deal but so different is the music he made with his band to his solo work and with desaparecidos that you can’t help but wonder. Perhaps we’ll see some influence from his magnum opus on this album or maybe it wasn’t the end after all.
