Just when you think you've heard all the Bob Dylan there is to hear, another little nugget always resurfaces. On this week's show we take a listen to a track from the legendary folk singer's latest release, The Witmark Demos. It's a series highlighting songs written and performed before Dylan reached the ripe age of 24. (Select tracks from these raw recordings can be streamed on our First Listen series.)

We've also got new music from Animal Collective's Avey Tare, a brilliant and never-before-played acoustic version of Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love," and Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson, better known as The Tallest Man on Earth.
