Conor Oberst's Desaparecidos drop a politically charged comeback album.
Redirected from Payola (album)). Payola is the second studio album by the American rock band Desaparecidos, released on June 23, 2015, through Epitaph Records. While Read Music/Speak Spanish, the band's first album, focused on themes relating to socioeconomics, marriage, and the American workforce, Payola consciously tackles a wider range of political issues.
It's been 13 years since Desaparecidos' previous album and in the time since, Conor Oberst's political conscience has seemed to age in reverse. Payola simplifies colossal, complex systemic issues into an "us vs. them" cage match and the Royal We are up against mostly strawmen and supervillains. This would be an issue if Oberst was using lines like, "Now we're taking it back for the greater good/ Goddamn Robin Hoods" and "Freedom is not free/ Neither is apathy" as a means of convincing listeners to vote in a primary election, draft a persuasive.
Between the first and the new Desaparecidos album, Conor Oberst has aged from 22 to 35. If you’ve kept up with his songwriting with Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk, or his work as simply Conor Oberst, you’ve noticed maturity has impacted his music on all fronts. There’s been a move away from his boyish, emotional lyrics, and his sonic arrangements shun lo-fi home recordings, growing in scope as cohort Mike Mogis has improved in his own right as a producer. Not only does Payola make sense within these confines, it even sounds inspired. Part of what makes Payola work is the time the band took in crafting it.

There is a lynching at Home Depot of the last day labourer In this sanctuary city with its anchor-baby births They scream Its time we had some justice for the white race on this earth This place is strange and getting stranger.
