    Watch: Conor Oberst Performs Songs from "Upside Down Mountain" for WNYC's Soundcheck's Gigstock
    Janice Yi for WNYC

    Conor Oberst, whose new album, Upside Down Mountain, is due out on Nonesuch Records on May 19, performed seven songs from the album live at the Greene Space in New York City last Wednesday night, April 10, on a double bill with James Vincent McMorrow as part of Gigstock, a mini festival from WNYC's Soundcheck. You can watch Oberst's performance of those new songs—"Time Forgot," "Double Life," "Night at Lake Unknown," "Lonely at the Top" "Hundreds of Ways," "You Are Your Mother’s Child," and "Common Knowledge"—below.

    "Oberst recorded Upside Down Mountain, his ninth solo effort, in Nashville," says Rolling Stone's Miriam Coleman in a re-cap of Wednesday's performance, "and the country influence shines through in the songwriting as well as the slide-glossed arrangements."

    "If the songs he played at Gigstock are any indication," says CMJ's Marie Scarsella, "Upside Down Mountain is going to be a hell of a record."

    Upside Down Mountain is available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store with an exclusive print featuring the album art, or via iTunes, both with an instant download of the tracks "Hundreds of Ways" and "Governor’s Ball." Oberst kicks off the first leg of a world tour in support of the new album on May 8 with special guests Dawes.

    Composer, singer, and instrumental polymath Ben LaMar Gay's new album, Open Arms to Open Us, is due November 19 on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Living up to NPR's claim that "there is no one universe for Ben LaMar Gay, he just sonic booms from one sound to another," he interweaves jazz, blues, ballads, R&B, raga, new music, nursery rhyme, Tropicália, two-step, hip-hop, and beyond in his most colorful and communicable work yet, an expression of his signature omni-genre, "Pan-Americana" brew. You can watch the video for the track "Sometimes I Forget How Summer Looks on You," featuring OHMME, here.
