A few months ago we heard Dirty Projectors cover “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine.” Well, the Brooklyn indier-than-thou sextet must really dig Bob Dylan’s John Wesley Harding, because they’ve returned with another album cut: “As I Went Out One Morning.” The tune comes from the expanded edition of their 2009 breakout Bitte Orca, released today.

“As I Went Out” takes more risks than “I Dreamed” and each one works. The vaguely nasal “aaaaah”s initally sound like a chorus of female Dylan impersonators. When the ladies hit the serious harmonies though, it sounds…well, not so much like Dylan. Listen below. (via We All Want Someone)

So what John Wesley Harding tune should they tackle next? “The Wicked Messenger” maybe? “Drifter’s Escape”? Heck, they might be one of the few groups who could do something new with “All Along the Watchtower.”
