David Dondero “Simple Love” (Team Love)
– If you want to know where Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes copped his vocal style then all you need to do is pick up any David Dondero album. Apparently, Oberst has admitted just that in interviews. One would hope so because there is no way he could possibly get away with it. And the irony is that both Dondero’s new album, Simple Love, and his last album, 2005’s South Of The South, have come out on Oberst’s label, Team Love. Simple Love is some of Dondero’s best work yet and is released today. Review upcoming.
