Phoebe Bridgers Live At OPB


At face value, Phoebe Bridgers‘ new album, “Stranger In The Alps,” is a profoundly melancholy offering packed with heavy songs about grief and breakups. It even contains a number called ‘Funeral’ (yes, she really was once hired to play at a funeral). But like the artist herself, the music has a well-developed and wry sense of dark humor running through its core that gives virtually everything she writes a three dimensional quality not often found in the work of a 23 year old. It’s an impressive and surprisingly mature debut from the LA-based songwriter, who joined us in the OPB studios earlier this fall before a gig opening for The War On Drugs at Portland’s Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.

Bridgers performed two songs with her band from “Stranger In The Alps” and a beautiful solo cover of Tom Petty’s “It’ll All Work Out”  (the legendary musician died a week before this session was record).

She also chatted with opbmusic’s Laura Hardin in an interview that you can hear below in its entirety.
