Bob Dylan has probably been covered by just about everyone in just about every genre. Hell, even his own shows now deliver tunes with little resemblance to their original arrangements! So while giving Dylan a heavy makeover is nothing new, the Lions unloading “Girl from the North Country” is, well, unique. It’s certainly damn amusing to hear Matt Drenik growling out “She once was a true love of mine!” Actually, what we like most about the Lions’ take on the song is not so much hearing the Dylan tune re-imagined, but rather listening to local rockers strike such a melodic tone (though guitar solo is pretty sweet!). The song was recorded for an episode of the FX show “Sons of Anarchy,” which has been enamored with the Lions tunes for a while now. It will be featured at some point on the shows next season, but in the meantime you download it for free below!
Lions will be stalking out Emo’s next month with a show on June 12th.
