Dirty Projectors – “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine” (Bob Dylan cover)

A few months back, the DP’s did a lovely cover of Dylan’s “Dark Eyes”, and, now, they’re offering up another Dylan deep cut: “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine” (from John Wesley Harding).  Once again, the band’s take is  sparse, acoustic and largely faithful to the original.  Somewhat shockingly, Dave Longstreth has smoothed down his normally strangulated wail into a fine approximation of Dylan’s sandpaper drawl.
