Conor Oberst And The Mystic Valley Band releasing outtakes album and film
Via Twitter, Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band announced it's releasing "One Of My Kind," a film about the band as well as an album of outtakes.
The film was shot by Phil Schaffart - a friend of Oberst's, his guitar tech and the leader of the band Con Dios - who recently performed a secret show with Oberst.
When the Mystic Valley Band got together to record in Mexico, Schaffart had a camera with him. He filmed the process, the resulting tour, the band's second album and the tour after that, too.
"One Of My Kind" is being released by Oberst's Team Love Records label and will be in stores on May 15. You can pre-order it now. Pre-orders will be sent out on May 1.
The tracklist features songs released in other formats by the band and Oberst as well as some (such as"Central City" by Taylor Hollingsworth) released at some point by other members of the band, but this is probably the best place to get it all. The song "Kodachrome," I would assume, is a cover of a Paul Simon song.
