Conor Oberst (best known from the band Bright Eyes) has a new album coming out in May. It’s called ‘Outer South’ and it’s pretty good. What’s even better: the documentary ‘One of my kind; The story of Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band’ is available now as a free download. You can get it right here, all you have to do is enter a valid email address. It’s worth it!
“Guitar-tech Phil Schaffart began informally video taping Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band in Tepoztlan, Mexico in January of 2008.
Over the next 12 months Schaffart, when he wasn’t tuning guitars, captured hours and hours of footage as the band traveled and performed around the world. By December the band was back in the recording studio, this time outside of El Paso, TX, making their new album “Outer South.”
Schaffart not only filmed these recording sessions but also sat down with the Mystic Valley Band for a series of interviews to discuss making music, life on the road and the year that was 2008. This 60-minute presentation is the results of his efforts.
The Mystic Valley Band would like to thank Causecast for their help in making this viewing possible.”
