Fader Interview

Xenophobia, nationalism, climate change, and the malignancy in the White House all terrify him, but Oberst — who campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008, supported Bernie Sanders in 2016, and insists that dispensing with Donald Trump is the only defensible path in 2020 — still believes that the arc of history bends towards justice, however slowly. Hopefully. At least today. “If you go back a couple hundred years, it was certainly worse,” he says. “Maybe in a couple of hundred more, it’ll be better.”

Late Show Auftritt

Am Montag den 22. Juni spielen Bright Eyes einen Auftritt in der Late Show mit Stephen Colbert.

Auch am offiziellen Instragram von Bright Eyes tut sich was, vielleicht steht die Ankündigung des Veröffentlichungstermin unmittelbar bevor?

Nichts neues gibt es leider zu dem Love Record Stores Auftritt, eventuell sind Bright Eyes Teil vom Secretly Canadian Slot, heute um 19:00.

Eine erste Kritik von Salutations auf Consequence of Sound

In place of sparse confessionals, Oberst offers amblers, anthems, and torch songs. The first track of the album, “Too Late to Fixate”, announces Salutations as such – a slow groove with his trademark combination of wry humor, self-pity, and world-weary reflection.

clicky.

Ein neuer Song, gespielt in der Oper in Sydney.

Informationen von Leuten, die auf dem Konzert waren zufolge wurde dieser Song erst drei Tage zuvor geschrieben, befindet sich also nicht auf Salutations.

Und ein Interview mit dem Sydney Morning Herald.

To a certain demographic, Conor Oberst is Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith and Bob Dylan rolled into one. In fact, for years he has been referred to as „the new Dylan“. He turned 37 the day before this interview. Does he finally feel old enough to pass that albatross on to someone else?

„I think I’m off the hook now, right?“ he says, laughing. „I mean, 37 feels old, even though people keep reassuring me I’m still young. I feel like there’s already been like a good five or 10 other new Dylans since me anyway, like Jake Bugg or someone.“
