an icon of the last alt-folk generation teams up with a hero of the current crop to create songs that bear bruises but with the power to empower and inspire.

The crackly lower registers of oberst mingle delightfully with bridges soaring leads, one’s imperfections complimenting the other’s slickness quite beautifully. Together their collaboration makes for one of the most pleasant surprises of recent times, with a highly-evolved form of folk-rock capable of uniting in a world hell-bent on pushing us further apart. “On their surprise collaboration, indie-folk heroes Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers find hope amid chaos; the record succeeds on its own merits, regardless of its authors’ impressive statuses” 8/10 – nme, “a loose but beautifully crafted collection of folk-rock songs” 8/10 - independent
