Better Oblivion Community Center Performed An Electric Version Of ‘Sleepwalkin’ On ‘Corden’

Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst‘s Better Oblivion Community Center collaborative record is a gorgeous collection of gentle folk. However, as anyone who has listened to the artists’ solo work knows, they’re just as adept at rocking out as they are at making you think. Bridgers and Oberst visited The Late Late Show With James Corden Thursday night for a thrilling live performance of their song “Sleepwalkin.”

On the record, “Sleepwalkin” is quiet and reflective, but on the Corden stage, it rocks out. Bridgers and Oberst are electric, and while “Sleepwalkin” usually has some dueling acoustics, this performance switches it up for a cathartic, climactic crescendo of guitar.

Bridgers and Oberst are touring Better Oblivion Community Center in North America this March and April, and headed out for some European dates later this spring. You can check out their North American dates below, and watch the performance of “Sleepwalkin'” above.
