"The Dog is Black," a collaboration between UNKLE mastermind James Lavelle and the Duke Spirit singer Liela Moss, starts off sounding like an exciting hybrid of Björk and Led Zeppelin in cosmic "Kashmir" mode but gradually changes course, ending on a more mellow and atmospheric tangent. The track is featured on UNKLE's forthcoming digital-only EP Only the Lonely, which will hit digital retailers on April 5th, but you can stream it here now.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
