Conor Oberst Hard At Work

Courtesy of NPR, I learned that Conor Oberst chose to record some vocal takes for his latest solo album while laying in a hammock. 

At Trek Light Gear we certainly know that ‘life is better in a hammock’, and it looks like Conor Oberst has been able to harness that relaxed vibe and record its effect on his vocals. 

I haven’t heard the album yet and I’ve never really recorded my voice while laying in a hammock, but I think Conor summed it best: "I don't know the science of it, but it sure was comfortable."

I hereby declare Mr. Oberst as an honorary member of the Trek Life community…it sounds like he would fit right in.
