Weekend Soundtrack

Jakob Dylan "Seeing Things"

Devoted Wallflowers fans have long sensed that Jakob Dylan had an album of this sort in him. What’s surprising, however, is the finesse with which he’s pulled it off. Pared for the most part to voice and acoustic guitar, the songs on "Seeing Things" bring to mind similar work by the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Alejandro Escovedo and Nebraska-era Bruce Springsteen.
