Jim Moray and Conor Oberst – two best albums of 2008

Jim Moray, English nu-folkie with attitude, and Conor Oberst, mannered purveyor of tremulous Americana, are particular favourites of Music for Grown-Ups.

They’re both in their 20s. Their outstanding catalogues prove that music for grown-ups doesn’t have to issue from superannuated (or dead) artists, but can be delivered by musos of any age.

By coincidence, both these exceptionally talented young men have just released fine new albums – Moray’s Low Culture and Oberst’s Conor Oberst

Happily, they are the two best albums of 2008. Better still, I’ve got tickets to see both performing live in small venues in the next few weeks.
