Conor Oberst has filed a libel lawsuit against a woman who wrote in online posts that she was sexually assaulted by the singer-songwriter.
Oberst's lawsuit says the woman posted accusations that Oberst raped her a decade ago in North Carolina after his brother, her middle school English teacher, introduced the two at an Oberst show. The lawsuit says she also claimed Oberst punched her in the face and that she was 16 at the time.

He says he was in the company of his brother,...

Bright Eyes released their highly anticipated album The People's Key yesterday, which many of you probably picked up already. However, if you haven't yet, you can now listen to the entire album on their AP.net profile. This is as intimate as you'd expect from Bright Eyes, and Conor sounds like Bob Dylan as much as ever. Jokes aside, this is yet another great record by him, so go take a listen and let us know what you think.
