On the Dial | 'Ruminations' by Conor Oberst



Conor Oberst Ruminations | Radio Waves

I've been a Conor Oberst fanboy since I was old enough to burn my own CDs. Oberst is undeniably one of the most prolific songwriters of our time. At only 36, he has released a seemingly countless number of albums as the front man of Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos, and Monsters of Folk.

His latest solo album, Ruminations, just dropped and the similarities to Bruce Springsteen's iconic album, Nebraska, are uncanny. Not only is Conor Oberst from Omaha, but the album is raw and stripped down, focusing on the lyrics with soulful harmonica swells that The Boss himself would find tasty. Imitation is the highest form of flattery, as they say.

I highly recommend checking it out. My favorite track is Barbary Coast (Later).
