Q: So at Reverb we have this segment called “Long and Winding Road” where we ask about albums that have influenced you throughout your lifeSo there’s three parts — what was your favorite album when you were 13?
Conor Oberst: It’s hard to sum it up entirely, but I would say that one of them would have to be this guy named Simon Joyner from Omaha. The record’s called ‘Room Temperature.’ I loved that album when I was 13. He’s an amazing lyricist.
Q: What about at 21?
Conor Oberst: 21…that was 2001? Let’s think. I’ll keep it kind of homegrown and say around that time or maybe the year before Cursive released an album called ‘Domestica’ which I was very into at the time.
Q: Then what would you say is your current favorite album?
Conor Oberst: Current favorite…I really have been enjoying that Kurt Vile album, ‘Smoke Ring for My Halo.’ So good. That’s been on pretty much constant rotation since it came out, so I’d have to say that one. I saw him play here in New York a month or so ago and it was awesome.
