Uncle Bob

Uncle Bob is back with a forthcoming album (Tempest, available Sept 11) and a new single, Duquesne Whistle, the latter of which is the best thing he’s put on record in ten years. The intro and guitar-driven counter melody is worth the entire song, but Dylan himself sings with more conviction than I’ve heard since ¾ of the way through Love & Theft. It makes me hopeful for the new album, promising a refreshing lift from the Zzz-fest that was Modern Times and Together Through Life.

Check out the equally entertaining video here.
