Desaparecidos - Read Music/Speak Spanish (2002)

Updated: Mar 26, 2020

In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy dive into Conor Oberst’s punk-rock side-project, Desaparecidos. Not unlike a wrestler’s excursion, Oberst took a brief aside from his ascension as a part of Bright Eyes and as the face (and bangs) of a genre to do something a little different before ultimately returning. Read Music/Speak Spanish is more political and far angrier than you may be used to with Oberst’s other projects, and while it wasn’t heralded at the time, it really works. Find out more about Oberst’s relationship with his hometown of Omaha, why he cared “way more” about Bright Eyes, and where this project ranks in the vast Oberst library on this week’s podcast.
