Laura Marling: A Hard Rain’s A Gonna Fall (Bob Dylan Cover)

Laura Marling’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s A Gonna Fall” has a way of cradling listeners with airy, powerful optimism in the face of adversity. While the lyrics address tragedy, troubling experiences and even triumph, Marling’s take feels much like words of encouragement. Crystalline pools of depth support the surface beauty, for a track that’s really quite the adventure itself.
