BETTER OBLIVION COMMUNITY CENTER - LITTLE TROUBLE (Dead Oceans)
Back in January, Better Oblivion Community Center, surprise-released their self-titled debut album. The record is available digitally and physically via Dead Oceans. Today, the new band from Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst follow the release with two new songs, as well as a live set for NPR's Tiny Desk featuring stripped-down performances of My City, Exception to the Rule, and the album's lead single Dylan Thomas.
Intended as a treat for fans, Better Oblivion Community Center's tour only 7" is now available digitally, and includes a new original track, Little Trouble, and a re-work of album track Sleepwalkin', which was recently performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Both songs were recorded during Christmastime with producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit).
They also shared the video for Dylan Thomas, directed by Japanese Breakfast's Michelle Zauner, which was performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and CBS' This Morning, where they also performed Didn't Know What I Was In For and My City.
