On Conor Oberst‘s current tour, which has happily included Bright Eyes songs, he has brought along Dawes as his backing band. Supporting the indie-rock Oracle of Omaha’s strikingly assured new album, Upside Down Mountain, the twangy classic-rock classicists performed his rollicking, soothsaying “Hundreds of Ways” during a recent stop on CBS This Morning. They brought the same song last night to Late Show With David Letterman, delivering a loose, bustling take with so many people onstage their host asked Oberst if he was paying everyone. The lyrical hook — “There are hundreds of ways to get through your days / Now you just find one” — are words Bright Eyes fans might wish we’d heard when we were younger, as our contributor Megan Seling notes in her Upside Down Mountain review. But there are almost as many ways to get through late-night TV: Also Monday night, Beck visited The Colbert Report and Jenny Lewis stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
