The collaboration One Jug of Wine, Two Vessels is the fruit of a long-time musical
appreciation between Bright Eyes and Neva Dinova. Featuring four new
songs in addition to six from the original 2004 Crank! Records release, One
Jug of Wine, Two Vessels is less of a split and more of a bona fide collaboration.
Dividing the songwriting duties, the original tracks were recorded
by Conor Oberst and Jake Bellows in basements of houses on quiet, leafy
streets in Omaha in the fall of 2003. Those tracks were mixed, tweaked, and
sprinkled with magic dust by famed producer-in-residence Mike Mogis at his
Presto! Studios in Lincoln, Nebraska. The groups reconvened in the fall of
2009 to write and record four new tracks at Mogis’s renowned ARC Studios
in Omaha for the reissue, to be released March 23rd, 2010, by Saddle Creek.
