Conor Oberst with First Aid Kit & Dawes

Conor Oberst is such a big deal that he can summon two different buzz bands to back him up at will. Or at least that was the case when he recorded a recent live session at the Haldern Pop Festival. Performing lazily luminous acoustic version of his 2005 Bright Eyes song “Lua,” Oberst recruited both members of First Aid Kit to sing backup and Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith to help him out on guitar. Watch the performance below.

  1. This shit cuts to the bone. I’ve loved this song for almost 10 years now, and this version is like listening to it for the first time.

  2. That was absolutely stunning.
