olöf arnalds – a little grim

She makes it sound so breezy, easy to be Zen…

And here’s the B-side to this single, performed live by Ólöf with her sister, Klara — one of the loveliest versions of this Dylan classic I’ve heard. Oh, and that little instrument is a charango, in case you’re curious.

“Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.”
