    Yes, I’m talking about Bob Dylan. Because Bob Dylan knows you’re bored. Or at least he thinks you’re bored enough to listen him tell you about the JFK assassination for 17 minutes. And he wants to help. Today, Dylan released his first new song in eight years (and not for nothing, the first since he was awarded a Nobel Prize for Literature): a meandering ballad called “Murder Most Foul.” You can listen and make your own judgement but . . . for me this is less a song and more just Bob Dylan talking over some gentle piano riffs. So enjoy, if that’s your thing.
