Gespräch zwischen Conor Oberst und Lorde

OBERST I’m amazed, actually, that I can still do this for a living. I always assumed that the well would run dry at some point, and I would have to get a real job. It took me a while to reconcile that this is my job. I want to do this because I’m compelled to do this, because I want to make art, but in the world we live in, you have to sell stuff and you have to make shirts with your name on it, and that’s not my first impulse.

Co-owned by Oberst and his friend Phil Schaffart, it’s been open and mostly free of musical acts since September of 2012, not long after he reunited with Desaparecidos, a band whose political specificity allows him to save more universal musings for his own work. (They recorded five new songs in March and are set to continue working on more later this year.)
