Better Oblivion Community Center covers

Hot on the heels of her much-acclaimed boygenius trio last year, buzzy singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers has teamed up with Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst for yet another supergroup. Calling themselves Better Oblivion Community Center, the pair just kicked off a tour supporting their self-titled album. They debuted a couple killer (no pun intended) covers at their first shows, tackling the Replacement’s “Can’t Hardly Wait” and the Killers’ “Human.”

The Replacements cover is fun, but the Killers cover is the real standout here. Stripped down to just the two of them singing together, it makes a frankly ridiculous song surprisingly poignant (doubly impressive given that they’re reading the lyrics off a piece of paper). Watch both below. Here’s hoping they keep adding more duo covers as the tour progresses.
