Dirty Projectors

“I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine” [Bob Dylan cover]

What do Dirty Projectors and Bob Dylan have in common? Nothing but their love for Levi’s®, duh! Check out Dirty Projectors covering Dylan’s “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine” here or stream it here. The track is part of Levi’s Pioneer Sessions, which also features contributions from Nas, She & Him, and The Swell Season. Though, I swear I saw Zooey Deschanel rocking Girbaud jeans the other night.

Mates of State

“True Love Will Find You in the End” [Daniel Johnston cover]

A couple months ago, we alerted you to Mates of States’ new covers album, Crushes, which glaringly has no Burning Star Core cover. (Come to think of it: where’s the Prurient cover?) What it does have, however, is a cover of Daniel Johnston’s “True Love Will Find You in the End,” off his 1990 album. It serves as the final track, so if you want to hear how the album ends, clicky clicky.
