    Listen: Conor Oberst Talks with Jenny Eliscu on Two-Part "LSQ"
    Amélie Raoul

    Conor Oberst is the guest on the latest two episodes of the LSQ podcast with host Jenny Eliscu, in a special two-part interview. Oberst is "one of my favorite artists of all time and a dear friend of mine as well," says Eliscu. He "has released some of my favorite albums of the past couple decades." You can listen to both episodes below.

    Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band began a seven-city tour in San Diego and Pomona earlier this week. The tour continues with a performance in Phoenix, Arizona, tonight, with special guest Phoebe Bridgers, and four more shows in California in the days ahead. Oberst has two shows as special guest of John Prine in November. For details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Oberst released the back-to-back albums Ruminations and Salutations on Nonesuch in 2016 and 2017, respectively. Salutations is a companion piece to Ruminations and comprises full-band versions of the ten songs from that solo album plus seven additional songs. The Independent says it's "probably the best work of the singer's career."

    Yola's debut solo album, Walk Through Fire, out next Friday, February 22, on Easy Eye Sound, is streaming in full all week as an NPR First Listen. Yola's "sonic palette, which spans country, folk, classic soul and '70s-era Britpop; her emotive songwriting, which oscillates between vulnerability and chest-pounding empowerment; and her truly powerful voice," says NPR Music's Brittney McKenna, "abounds on Walk Through Fire, ... [which] showcases Yola's otherworldly vocals and compelling songwriting." McKenna concludes: "It's the work of an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come."

    David Byrne's Nonesuch Records debut album, Grown Backwards, first released on March 16, 2004, will make its vinyl debut almost 15 years later, on March 15, 2019. The double-vinyl edition is the original album plus six additional tracks, including a duet with Caetano Veloso on their song "Dreamworld." It's "one of Byrne's most rewarding experiments yet," said the Guardian. "It fits alongside the best of his career and adds another solid release to a solo catalog which will hopefully become more cherished in time," said Pitchfork in 2004. "In 20 years, as we straighten our faces with botulism, braces, and stem cells, the album will stand up." Pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
