The style highlights the strengths of Bridgers’ unique lyric writing perspective: there are overt references to lost idols, canonical pop songs and actual incidents, but her stories unfold through precise, evocative imagery sung in her subtle, confessional style.The latter is perhaps the most upbeat moment on the album and was written on her baritone guitar and discusses a problematic relationship from her past.In the midst of putting together that band - upstate New York's The Felice Brothers plus the legendary drummer Jim Keltner (Neil Young, Jackson Browne, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, and many more) - the passionate responses Oberst was getting to those first solo recordings, from friends and colleagues, encouraged him to release the songs as-is, in their original sparse form, released in October 2016 as Ruminations.Pitchfork called it “a record like none other in Oberst’ s catalog, stunning for how utterly alone he sounds,” and the UK’ s Sunday Times called it, “The rawest album yet from the forever troubled one-time voice of a generation.It was a true stroke of luck that he got involved when he did."Don’t let the somber tone of her music fool you: the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers has a sunny disposition.“I’d hate for someone to think I’m sipping an espresso somewhere judging people or feeling sorry for myself.“Los Angeles is interwoven into my music inherently,” she says.

Back to understanding what is really important and has meaning for him.But of course the truth is that the unique ingredient at play, the calling card that has drawn all this interest and intrigue, is simply Bridgers’ music itself.Her powerful, lilting voice and her haunting, introspective songs light the torch that shows the way, and are what have inspired artists like Ryan Adams to produce her 2015 single, or Julien Baker to bring her on tour in 2016, as well as John Doe and Conor Oberst to sing with her on her debut album.
