DIRTY PROJECTORS RECORD BOB DYLAN COVER (AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD)
Dirty Projectors | 06/07/10
Dirty Projectors recently recorded a version of Bob Dylan's "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine" for Levi's Pioneer Sessions.
As the fine people at Levi's point out, "Refashioning a lesser-known Bob Dylan gem isn’t an obvious choice for this band, but Longstreth shares with Dylan a spirit of restless reinvention....'I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine' is a simple production, just Dylan’s voice, guitar and some light drums. But, the song’s cryptic lyrics, mysterious and concise, fit neatly within the little mysteries that Longstreth has created with Dirty Projectors’ catalog."
We couldn't agree more.
