Lions – Girl From The North Country

Of course I’m above remarking on how Dylan’s original was far better, for the most part because I’ve never heard it, especially since Lions have done such a good job in making it sounding all fresh and new. Like a lot of the discoveries I make these days I owe it to a TV show for bringing me here. In this case it is thanks to a formulaic drama about Oakland bikers that seems a perfect fit for late night viewing when any activity above breathing could become too taxing. This was in the opening episode of Series 2 and synced with the visuals more or less perfectly. Texan band Lions gave ‘Girl From The North Country’ a Sonic Youth grungey demeanour but it is the vocals that really leave the greatest impression with a chorus fit for a chapter on the up and ready for controlled anarchy.
