Those of you who swooned over Joe Hagan's Bill Fox piece in this year's Believer music issue should check out the Driftwood Singers Present for some tracks from The Revelers, a band featuring Fox's brother Tommy. (Woah...suddenly I had an out-of-body experience and thought I was writing about the Replacements!)
And those Driftwooders also lead us to this sublimely bad idea: Dylan interpreted by a string quartet.

I love this song!
Here's Sarah Chang playing the Bach:
