Levi’s Pioneer Sessions: Dirty Projectors

After Nas, She & Him, and The Swell Season comes the forth installment of the Levi’s Pioneer Sessions featuring Brooklyn’s indie darlings Dirty Projectors.

Covering a very old Bob Dylan track for the second time, this recreation is particularly apt as it marks the first time Longstreth & Co. have given approval to re-contextualize an icon.

Watch as they put together Bob Dylan’s folky spare track from 1967 “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine” in the studio.

Once again here is the full track listing of what is still to come:
