Conor Oberst shares new song “Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out” with “one-take” video — watch

The latest folksy gem off next month's Salutations

    Listen to enough Replacements songs and you start to realize that life in a bottle is one long, tedious blur. That appears to be the conceit of Greg Marinaccio’s new video for Conor Oberst’s latest folk jam, “Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out”.

    Through one long take — although, it’s not, as you can see with the shadowy dividing lines — we watch as a litany of characters go through the motions at what ostensibly must be St. Dymphna’s bar. According to Stereogum pillar Tom Breihan, Magnetic Fields frontman Stephin Merritt is somewhere in the chaos.

    As previously reported, Oberst is releasing Salutations on March 17th via Nonesuch. It’s a follow-up to last year’s stripped-down Ruminations and features a mix of new material and songs from that album, all fleshed out by a number of stars, from the Felice Brothers to Jim James to Jim Keltner to Blake Mills.
