SECOND ALBUM WITH NEW BAND, LIVE DATES IN APRIL
Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band will release a brand new album on May 5th on Merge Records. The album, titled Outer South, was recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillio, outside El Paso, Texas in November/December and features the same group of musicians as were present on last year's excellent Conor Oberst album (see JamBase review here).

The Mystic Valley Band is Taylor Hollingsworth, Nik Freitas, Macey Taylor, Nathaniel Walcott and Jason Boesel. Outer South is a 16-track album featuring songs written by Oberst, Boesel, Freitas, and Hollingsworth, some of which were part of the live show from late last year including "Nikorette," which they performed on Late Night With Conan O'Brien in November (clip below).
The Mystic Valley Band will be playing a run of shows in the West, including the Coachella Festival this spring and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in June.
