Local Natives popped up in yesterday’ episode of Apple TV+’s The Shrink Next Door, which stars Paul Rudd as Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf, a psychiatrist who, over 30 years, does horrible things to one of his patients, played by Will Ferrell. (It’s a true story, adapted from the hit podcast.) In episode four, Local Natives play a cover band and tackle tunes by Roxy Music, Gerry Rafferty, Michael McDonald, and 10cc. They’ve now spun those recordings into a surprise soft-rock covers EP, Music From The Pen Gala 1983. Check it out below.

But you might be surprised to learn that Electric Six are, in fact, still around, and have actually been releasing music regularly this whole time. They put out their 17th studio LP in 2018, and BrooklynVegan reports that they’ve just announced a new one: a covers album.

In the almost 60 years since Bob Dylan released his debut album, countless words have been spilled on his singular legacy. There are books and movies and over half a century’s worth of music journalism trying to dissect the mystery and pin down the multitudes. College courses unpack his lyrics. A Presidential Medal Of Freedom and a Nobel Prize and who knows how many other honors mark Dylan’s towering, seismic presence as not just a musician but a cultural and literary icon of the American Century. All of which is to say: You and I both know about Bob Dylan, and there’s little I could say to celebrate his 80th birthday that hasn’t been said many times before.
