Into the Mystic Valley
Mystic bright eyes: The trembling-voiced bard (Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos) from Omaha returns with his latest project, the Mystic Valley Band, which is beefed up with guitarists Taylor Hollingsworth and Nik Freitas. They'll dish out songs from Oberst's recent self-titled Merge Records CD, which includes folk rambles (the fanciful "Cape Canaveral"), country-rock travelogues ("Sausalito") and rootsy shuffles ("I Don't Want to Die in the Hospital," which is like the countrified flip side to the Replacements' similar "Take Me Down to the Hospital")
