  • Better Oblivion Community Center: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    11:36

    April 24, 2019 | Bob Boilen -- When this fabulous new duo arrived for their Tiny Desk, it felt like old friends coming home. Both Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers are Tiny Desk alum. Conor's first Tiny Desk Concert came during his Upside Down Mountain Tour in 2014. Phoebe has come by twice in the past few years, first as a solo artist in 2017 and then as part of another creative and collaborative endeavor with Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker as boygenius in 2018. So, unlike the bundle of nerves that often come with an appearance at the NPR offices, this one was fun and, at times, silly, like when Conor Oberst sang into a fake rubber microphone on the other end of a chopstick that was sitting on my desk. But there was nothing trivial about the songs or the collaboration.

    Better Oblivion Community Center came as a surprise to us all this year and, at the moment, their self-titled release is my favorite record of 2019. It's that rare musical partnership where each injects vibrancy into the other's creative side. And when their voices intertwine, there's a radiance that often feels joyful even while singing words like the ones on their opening number, Dylan Thomas.

    I'm getting used to these dizzy spells
    I'm taking a shower at the Bates Motel
    I'm getting greedy with this private hell
    I'll go it alone, but that's just as well

    Christian Lee Hutson backed the duet on guitar and electronics. Phoebe and Conor also had me playing whirly tube on the final tune, My City. So I was whipping a corrugated, ribbed plastic hose over my head, creating a high pitched siren sound, trying to blend in with Christian's electronics on My City. It was my Tiny Desk performance debut, and I was thrilled to be part of this magical act.

  • Harlows Monkeys - Dylan Thomas (Better Oblivion Community Center cover

    2:58

    Us covering the better oblivion community center smash hit. Loving the Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers collab.

    It was quite early one morning
    Hit me without warning
    I went to hear the general speak
    I was standing for the anthem
    Banners all around him
    Confetti made it hard to see
    Put my footsteps on the pavement
    Starved for entertainment
    Four seasons of revolving doors
    So sick of being honest
    I'll die like Dylan Thomas
    A seizure on the barroom floor
    I'm getting greedy with this private hell
    I'll go it alone, but that's just as well
    These cats are scared and feral
    The flag pins on their lapels
    The truth is anybody's guess
    These talking heads are saying
    The king is only playing a game of four dimensional chess
    There's flowers in the rubble
    The weeds are gonna tumble
    I'm lucid but I still can't think
    I'm strapped into a corset
    Climbed into your corvette
    I'm thirsty for another drink
    If it's advertised, we'll try it
    And buy some peace and quiet
    And shut up at the silent retreat
    They say you've gotta fake it
    At least until you make it
    That ghost is just a kid in a sheet
    I'm getting used to these dizzy spells
    I'm taking a shower at the Bates Motel
    I'm getting greedy with this private hell
    I'll go it alone, but that's just as well

    - Better Oblivion Community Center -

    Like, it's, it's impossible to count
    One, two, three, four

    Drinking cold, black coffee
    I shake and shake, still won't get off me
    Another blissed out fantasy
    Where animals and objects talk to me
    Always try and hate it
    But then you laugh, it sounds outrageous
    Spend another day sleepwalking

    Is this having fun?
    Or is it just because?
    Which one is jumping first
    Off of the face of the earth?

    You like beer and chocolate
    I like setting off those bottle rockets
    We can never compromise
    But fighting 'til the death keeps us alive
    Why don't you stay
    If you're going to leave your car here anyway?
    Spend another summer shit-talking

    Is this having fun?
    It's not like the way it was
    I thought that you loved this stuff
    Or did I make that up?

    Acting insane, playing it safe
    I wasn't sold on that plan anyways
    Feeling afraid of making a change
    Hoping to last another day
    I want them to stop, the circular thoughts
    Spinning a whirlpool of forget-me-nots
    I gave what I got, it came as a shock
    To find out I'm fine with what I've lost

  • Better Oblivion Community Center making my dreams come true by playing Lua by Bright Eyes

    5:24

    I’ve been a big fan of Conor for quite some time. Seen him live around six times. This is the first time I’ve had a chance to hear him play Lua. Phoebe Bridgers voice suits this song so well. This was at the Bunkhouse Saloon in Las Vegas. Also. You can hear me say “oh Jesus Christ” at the beginning. Which only confirms my excitement and emotional attachment to this song.
