AAA’s Hottest Record of the Week: Dylan Thomas by Better Oblivion Community Center

Better Oblivion Community Center have shared the surreal music video for debut single Dylan Thomas – and it’s our Hottest Record Of The Week.

Last week saw Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst release their surprise collaboration album under the Better Oblivion Community Center moniker, and the pair have also just announced a UK and world tour.

You can check out the tour dates below, as well as the video for Dylan Thomas, directed by Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner.

“Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst are two of my favorite songwriters and lyricists of our time, so it was an honour to get to work with them on the visuals for their new project together,” said Zauner.

“As always I worked with Adam Kolodny, my DP and creative collaborator to bring this cross between an Eyes Wide Shut LA mansion party and the Great Northern Hotel to life.”

Speaking to NME about the UK leg of their tour, Bridgers said: “I think we’re going to try to have fun with it, but we’re not quite sure what [the setlist will be yet].”

Oberst added: “The record is only 40 or so minutes, so in order for us to do a headline set we’re going to have to come up with some more material. I think [we’ll do] covers and maybe reworking some of our own songs too.”
