2. Read Music/Speak Spanish, Desaparecidos (Saddle Creek). Part I, in which barely legal Conor Oberst, who is smarter than you were at his age, and is backed by loud, churning guitars that sound comfortable to a lot of us, rails against everything standing in the way of the American dream promised to him: urban sprawl, clothes that are too expensive (available exclusively at a mall that sickens him), and a mortgage with an ugly balloon payment ever-looming. Oh, and it completely frickin' rocks, too.
