Currently Listening To…

Jakob Dylan has escaped my attention for most of his career. I’ve heard a few songs from the Wallflowers, and of course I know who his daddy is – but I’ve never listened to his music with any intentionality.

A few days ago a friend sent me a sample tune from this record, and tonight while I was looking for something at Barnes & Noble, I heard the song again – but I couldn’t place it! I texted a sample of the lyric to myself so I could hunt it down, and then had a brilliant idea; I ran to the music department.

“Who is this?”

It was Jakob Dylan – the same song I’d received, ‘On Up the Mountain’. Beautiful, evocative lyric that really moved me.

I came home and found the song on iTunes; ended up downloading the entire album. It’s incredibly good.

I feel like somebody just told me an exquisite secret.

Check it out.
