While the new songs furnish One Jug of Wine, Two Vessels with a front-end that’s both muscular and unfamiliar, they also spin it into something grander and harder to ignore.»

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 release, 'one jug of wine, two vessels' is less of a split and more of a bona fide collaboration. after 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 renowned presto! studios in lincoln, nebraska. the groups reconvened in the fall of 2009 to write and record four new tracks to be included on the reissue, released by saddle creek.
