Better Oblivion Community Center
*Indies edition is on transclucent orange vinyl*
Better Oblivion Community Center are a brand new band comprising the formidable talents of Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst, two of the most lauded American songwriters of the past several years.
The pair first collaborated on Bridgers’ 2017 single, ‘Would You Rather’, taken from her acclaimed debut album Stranger In The Alps. They teamed up again for a recording of Oberst’s ‘LAX’ in 2018.
Co-produced by Bridgers, Oberst and longtime Oberst / Bright Eyes collaborator Andy LeMaster and mixed by John Congleton, Better Oblivion Community Center features the work of several talented friends, including Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Carla Azur (Autolux, Jack White) among others. Bridgers and Oberst are currently putting together a live band to begin touring in March.
