Bright Eyes and Neva Dinova, both from Omaha, are longtime friends and mutual fans. Both bands have supported each other for years - long before the overwhelming mass notoriety that has enveloped Bright Eyes. Talk of doing a joint release has been bouncing back and forth between them for what seems like eons - yet hectic schedules have continuously delayed the project. Finally, they found some time. Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst plays guitar and sings backup on the Neva Dinova songs, and Neva Dinova plays some music and sings backup on the Bright Eyes tunes. has the feel of brothers playing songs to each other.
Surprisingly, Neva Dinova's Jake Bellows gets the better of Oberst on the new material. Perhaps it's a matter of relativity- Neva's 2008 LP You May Already Be Dreaming was dreary, lacking anything near the Cure-like flanged bass and escalating melodies of One Jug's surprisingly celebratory leadoff track ("Rollerskating"). Someone's Love" hews more toward Neva Dinova's typical barstool lamentations of busted romance, but it's far more ballsy than any of Dreaming's longfaced weepers.

Much like Home, Vol. 4, Conor Oberst's collaboration with Spoon's Britt Daniel, One Jug of Wine, Two Vessels is a meeting of the minds between Oberst and his friends Neva Dinova. That band's singer/songwriter, Jake Bellows, and Oberst got together in fall 2003 to collaborate on some songs, and though the results aren't quite as accomplished as either band's work on their own, the six songs here are pretty and entertaining enough to please both Bright Eyes and Neva Dinova fans.
By the time this 2004 collaboration with Omaha band Neva Dinova was originally released, Oberst had been photographed kissing Winona Ryder and he assumed near-celebrity status as a result. He’d also begun veering away from the emotionally and musically intense, distraught stylings of his early songs towards a more folk- and country-inspired sound. One Jug of Wine, Two Vessels could well be seen as the turning point before he made the full transition. Although only four minutes long, Get Back also outstays its welcome, and album closer Spring Cleaning lacks punch or variation. It’s a shame, because there are some truly marvellous moments here. Unfortunately, these high standards aren’t consistently maintained.

Originally released in 2004, One Jug Of Wine, Two Vessels was a six-track collaborative effort between Conor Oberst's Bright Eyes and their Omaha, Nebraska label-mates Neva Dinova. The two bands took turns to accompany each other on what seemed to be paired songs viewing similar circumstances from different aspects: Neva Dinova's "Tripped" and Bright Eyes' "Black Comedy" both faced the tribulations of break-up with equally jaundiced eyes.
