News & Reviews

  • Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record stores, takes place over two RSD Drops on two Saturdays this year, and included among the special releases are: on June 12, Conor Oberst's Ruminations (Expanded Edition), a two-LP remastered edition of his acclaimed 2016 solo album with five bonus tracks; and on July 17, Randy Newman’s Roll with the Punches: The Studio Albums (1979–2017), an eight-LP set of his latest seven studio albums, including Bad Love on vinyl for the first time and Faust demos.

  • Conor Oberst released his Nonesuch Records debut album, Upside Down Mountain, in May 2014. Earlier that spring, he had previewed what was to come with the release of a limited-edition vinyl 7" for Record Store Day, featuring the album track "Hundreds of Ways" b/w the album outtake "Fast Friends." Later that year, for Record Store Day: Black Friday, came another limited-edition vinyl 7" with two non-album tracks recorded during the Upside Down Mountain sessions: "Standing on the Outside Looking In" b/w "Sugar Street." All of those tracks are finally available digitally and can be heard here.

  • About This Album

    Originally released as a vinyl 7" from Conor Oberst for Record Store Day 2014, this single—"Hundreds of Ways," from his Nonesuch Records debut album, Upside Down Mountain, along with the album outtake "Fast Friends"—was released digitally in 2018. Rolling Stone said of Upside Down Mountain: "A sumptuous immersion in '70s California folk pop, it is the most immediately charming album he has ever made."
