I’ve been under an avalanche of Reader deadlines the past couple days and am just now lifting my head above the waves. Needless to say, you’ll be reading a lot about Simon Joyner here and in The Reader this week. He’s got a vinyl release show Friday night at The Sydney, and the hype meter is definitely off the charts.

In other news… Conor Oberst has been lighting up The Google the past few days after Omaha’s Golden Child played The Newport Folk Festival. — I site that I practically live at (no, really… not really) — reports that Oberst performed with Dawes and Jackson Browne the Friday prior at Newport’s Pickens Theater. You can watch the Conor Browne performance on the YouTube here. Have the Eagles ever sounded so good?

In addition, The Conor performed a couple new numbers during a gig in Fairfield, CT, last Thursday. That’s also online at YouTube, right here.

In other Saddle Creek news, your old pals Tilly in the Wall released the first track from their new one, Heavy Mood, which comes out Oct. 2 on Team Love. You can hear “Love Riot” via SoundCloud below. It definitely has that familiar Tilly shout stomp vibe:

Speaking of vibes, Orgone returns to Omaha tonight at The Waiting Room. The L.A. project’s sound draws form soul, funk and Afrobeat. Satchel Grande is opening. $8, 9 p.m. Wanna taste? Check out “Lookout” via SoundCloud below:
