Like his hero Neil Young, Conor Oberst performs in various configurations, both solo and with such bands as Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos and Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley Band. After spending much of the past winter holed up alone in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, it’s not surprising that his upcoming new album, Ruminations, is a stark solo collection of intimate piano ballads with such enigmatic titles as “Tachycardia,” “The Rain Follows the Plow” and “Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out.” It’s a deeper and more introspective glimpse of the songwriter, as he sheds the full-band backing of his previous solo record, Upside Down Mountain, for a more personal and direct approach. Pearl Charles is a former member of The Driftwood Singers and The Blank Tapes, but she is a more fully evolved and soulfully rootsy singer when leading her own band.
