Conor Oberst has long been an important voice in American roots music, and his Sitch Session performance of "A Little Uncanny" is perfectly timed for these imperfect times. In it, he pages through historical moments to consider how he/we arrived right here, right now: "You know old Ronnie Reagan, he was a shoe salesman's son. He got himself in the movies. He impressed everyone. He thought trial by fire was America's fate. He made a joke of the poor people and that made him a saint."
