Lay Lady Lay by Bob Dylan

I recently came across this cover of Bob Dylan’s classic “Lay Lady Lay” and it inspired me to go back to the original.  I’ve had a hard time with Dylan since I saw him play about 8 years ago and was incredibly disappointed.  He was clearly drunk or high on something, performed terribly (was barely audible) and didn’t even get through half a set.  That said, he was undeniably an extraordinary talent and one of the most influential artists ever of his generation and genre.  This cover by Magnet (the pseudanym of Norwegian Even Johansen) in collaboration with Gemma Hayes of Ireland really highlights the commutability of Dylan’s work.

Track 42: Lazuli by Beach House

Prolific indie dream pop group Beach House has made its mark like a storm slowly rolling to shore.  The duo from Baltimore have been putting forth their hallmark lethargically epic soundscapes since 2004 but only in the past few years have gained notoriety.  It could have something to do with their shift to Seattle’s Sub Pop Records for their last two albums.  This is off of their most recent collection Bloom which was incidentally released a year ago today.
