Levi's, the clothing company known primarily for jeans and related accessories, has a new series out on their website called Levi's Pioneer Sessions
wherein a diverse array of today's "pioneering" musicians cover the songs that inspired them. For their session, Dirty Projectors
' Longstreth and his army of virtuosos took a stab at Dylan's "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine".
Instead of reinventing Dylan as they did with Black Flag
's oeuvre back in '07, the Projectors offer a pretty faithful rendition of "St. Augustine", adding the harmonies that the group is known for while leaving the rest of the song intact. Stream it over at NY Mag
or download it from the Levi's website
along with other covers from Nas
, The Swell Season
, and She & Him
