Conor Oberst - Upside Down Mountain [Album Review]

Conor Oberst - Upside Down Mountain [Album Review] | New Music | Scoop.it

The album is 55 minutes of simplistic storytelling, Oberst’s ever recognizable vocals and a whole lot of heart. If you’ve been an Oberst fan at any point of his career before 2009, it’s a record that’s easy to fall in love with.

United Nations: The Next Four Years

United Nations: The Next Four Years | New Music | Scoop.it
United Nations are a complicated semi-lark that Geoff Rickly, former lead singer of Thursday, has kept going in some form or another since 2005. The project's always practiced warfare via confusion, and their latest album is structured around the band's fake mythology; musically, though, The Next Four Years moves like a piece of fine engineering—all curved lines, no wind resistance.
