Saddle Creek Records
Conor Oberst is name well known in music circles, but its interesting to note his brother, Justin, is one of the brains behind the record label Saddle Creek. Also the home of legends Cursive, Tokyo Police Club and Son, Ambulance amongst others, you can't go wrong with this week's episode! Saddle Creek Records continues to be the flagship label of a style of music called "The Omaha Sound", characterised by a slight country twang. This is increasingly inaccurate, though, with the rise of more electronic sounds such as those favoured by The Faint. Catch Bronwyn Thompson run through the varied styles and artists that make up this influential label.
