The cover of Bob Dylan



We love a good cover. But when it comes down to Bob Dylan (to whom we owe it all) it´s hard. There are so many! Some great, some not so great.

Among the top 10 we find beautiful takes as Sufjan Stevens – Ring Them Bells, Hederos & Hellberg – You’re a Big Girl Now, Antony & the Johnsons – Knockin’ on Heavens Door, Buddy Miller – With God on Our Side,  The White Stripes – One More Cup of Coffee, Sixteen Horsepower – Nobody ’Cept You, Nina Simone – The Ballad of Hollis Brown… and off course the almighty Jimi Hendrix – All Along the Watchtower.

But today we give ya’ll a treat. Check out Wendy Bucklew and her swoop at Buckets of Rain. Devastating!

Suf’s back.


Som Horace skulle ha sagt, -Äntligen.

Sufjan Stevens släpper nytt 12 oktober, ”The Age Of Adz” som plattan kommer att heta är efterlängtad. Mannen som gjorde en av 2005 års absolut bästa skivor, har varit vänlig nog att låta oss få en liten peek.

Lyssna upp EP:n All Delighted People på Stereogum.
