Each of these videos touches on opposite ends of the special effects spectrum. Conor Oberst is lo-fi projection screen magic that you could probably reproduce if you had enough time and unemployed friends. The Stills probably took a lot of one semi-nerdy dude's time sitting in front of a computer, but is much fancier looking. Which is better? How could possibly ask us that, you jerk? Above: Conor Oberst, "Souled Out". After the jump: The Stills, "Being Here". Both songs off of reliably great albums by musicians who have been on the cover of The FADER.
