    Watch: Conor Oberst Performs for WFUV Live
    WFUV

    Conor Oberst marked the release of his new album, Upside Down Mountain, with a concert at Rough Trade NYC in Brooklyn last night, backed by the band Dawes, which is joining him as special guest on his current tour, following the previous night's performance on The Tonight Show. Oberst recently stopped by Studio A at New York listener-supported radio station WFUV, 90.7 FM, to talk with WFUV's Carmel Holt and perform three songs from the album for WFUV Live: "Hundreds of Ways," "Double Life," and "Time Forgot." You can watch the three performances below and listen to the complete session at wfuv.org.

    Upside Down Mountain is WFUV's "New Dig" this week. "For someone looking for a primer on the talents of Conor Oberst as a poet and songwriter," writes FUV's Darren DeVivo, "one need not look any further than Upside Down Mountain. At the tender age of 34, Conor has established himself as one of rock’s preeminent creative minds."

    Here are the WFUV Live performances:

    Oberst was the guest on NPR's World Cafe. He spoke with host David Dye about the new album and performed "Zigzagging Toward the Light" and "Artifact #1," as well as earlier tunes "Moab" and "Hit the Switch." You can listen to the complete episode at npr.org.

    To pick up a copy of Upside Down Mountain, head to Amazon, iTunes, or the Nonesuch Store, where vinyl (due around May 30) and CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; MP3 and FLAC lossless files are also available to purchase there.

    "Laurie Anderson Has a Message for Us Humans," Sam Anderson's New York Times Magazine feature on Laurie Anderson in last week's issue of the magazine, is today's episode of The Sunday Read from the Times podcast The Daily. Before reading his article, the writer conveys five questions Laurie Anderson had shared with him, "a sort of test that uses to figure out whether a piece that she's working on is good or not ... 'Is it complicated enough? Is it simple enough? Is it crazy enough? Is it beautiful enough? And finally, Is it stupid enough?' And I thought that was kind of a great criteria for proceeding with life, with whatever you are doing."
