Conor Oberst :: My Favorite Artists/Bands

Conor Oberst :: My Favorite Artists/Bands

I became enraptured by Conor Oberst singing and songwriting during a particular year that had a huge impact on my musical taste. It was the in the early aught’s, during the same time frame that I discovered Arcade Fire, Death Cab For Cutie, The Libertines, and Conor’s incarnation, Bright Eyes. I think it was Lua I heard first, a track discovered on a Mix CD that a good friend of mine made, and sent out for a musical Valentine’s present. Or, it could have been Lover I Don’t Have to Love, heard off of a Pandora station. I cannot recall which was first, but I do remember falling hard for both songs, especially the former. It wasn’t long after that I went out and bought I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning and LIFTED Or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground.

Yearns for a sleep that will never come :: Jeff Buckley :: My Favorite Artists
