NPR Sunday Puzzle (Jan 7): ...and a New Year Dawns

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Jan 7): ...and a New Year Dawns:
Q: Think of a familiar two-word phrase, in the form, BLANK-OIL. And another familiar two word phrase, in the form, OIL-BLANK, in which the two words in the blanks are anagrams of each other. Here's a hint: Each of the anagrams is a regular four-letter word. What phrases are these?
Edit: Technically the answer to this could be LAMP OIL and OIL LAMP, but I think the intended answers are true anagrams of each other.

For NPR puzzle posts, don't post the answer or any hints that could lead to the answer before the deadline (usually Thursday at 3pm ET). If you know the answer, submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
