Conor Oberst was wise to be a little leery of all the “voice of a generation” accolades that began cropping up when his Omaha-based band Bright Eyes first appeared in the late ‘90s; then again, he could have been too busy pouring out his soul to even notice. His hyper-confessional style, wedded to an equally emotive brand of folk-rock, made Oberst a pivotal figure in indie culture’s mid-2000s absorption into the mainstream-pop universe. As prolific as his album titles could be verbose (2002’s Lifted has a 12-word alternate title), the 34-year-old Oberst has released 12 Bright Eyes LPs to date, plus several more with various side projects and under his own name, including this year’s self-assured Nonesuch debut Upside Down Mountain.
