Conor Oberst – Ruminations

Conor Oberst turned 36 this year and his recording career is already 22 years deep. In that time, he’s gone from songwriting prodigy to indie culture mainstay, with some projects standing out more than others, as is inevitable when you offer up new music on a yearly basis. And just when it seemed like his prolific nature is the best attribute of his 30s, he released last year’s Desaparecidos record, which manages to sound every bit as hungry and agitated as the project’s original offering did a decade earlier. The point being that though Oberst’s younger days shined so bright in comparison to his recent output, there is reason to hope that greatness is not just a characteristic of his past work.
