While on Triple J’s Like A Version radio show in Australia, the Dirty Projectors did us all a favor a laid down a gorgeous cover of Bob Dylan’s “Dark Eyes”.  It’s an obscure pick for sure, but it’s also one of endless buried treasures in Dylan’s catalogue.  The Dirty Projectors keep the arrangement spartan: just Longstreth on lead vocals and acoustic guitar and, of course, sublime vocal accompaniment from Amber, Angel and Haley.

If you haven’t heard it already, I recommend checking out Iron & Wine and Calexico’s cover of “Dark Eyes” from the I’m Not There soundtrack.
