Didn't know where to post this, so she should probably have her own thread by now.  I guess this thread will be for me and polka because I haven't seen anyone else here recognize how great she is? Also not sure if I already posted about this. I know I thought about doing it...

Not a superfan of her collab with Oberst yet, I enjoy both of their solo efforts more, but I do like the idea of them making music together and enjoy listening to them talk about their craft in interviews. This one is good:



Also:


And literally everything else she has been involved with.

Even if you and I are the only ones who care, this thread is good and necessary.

Here's some more of the good shit:

And if anyone ever dares question my bona fides, know that I found these videos of her high school band Einstein's Dirty Secret back when they only had like 20 views each.

Apparently a thing they've been doing at Better Oblivion Community Center shows is playing Phoebe's song "Funeral" in the style of a Bad Religion-era punk song. It's everything I never knew I needed.

Fuck yeah! Give me a studio version of that and I'll be a happy man.

I never really got into The National, and apparently this whole time it was only because of a lack of Phoebe Bridgers.
