If you’re reading this, you almost certainly have heard of Conor Oberst. He’s a prolific, style-shifting singer-songwriter who does everything from bummer folk to angsty rock to weirdo electronic music.
“City on the Hill” is an anthemic, political rocker. Mr. Oberst has done political stuff before — here’s a reminder. YouTube inexplicably pulled the performance — it can’t possibly qualify in the top million most controversial things on YouTube — so it’s The Daily Motion to the rescue.
The sophomore album by Desaparecidos, entitled Payola, is due on June 23rd. You can pre-order it here.
