Conor Oberst Covers Paul Simon, Plays New Songs In Austin

Eponymous solo artist Conor Oberst played Austin City Limits with his Mystic Valley Band this past Saturday. Those in attendance heard a couple new songs — “10 Women” and the extended Rolling Stone-referencing “I Got A Reason #2″ — along with a cover of a Paul Simon’s “Kodachrome,” a song they “sing everyday on the bus.” We weren’t there, but because of a tip (thanks, gorillasareforeating), we have proof. One thing our tipster tells us, and which isn’t captured, is that Oberst dedicated the countrified ballad “10 Women” to Britt Daniel. Hmm, why’s that Britt? Listen:

The Oberst originals:
