A wonderful talent, Iron & Wine recently decided to delve into the archives.
Sam Beam has leafed through numerous lost DATs, with his ‘Archive Series’ compilations due to launch new month.
‘Archive Series Volume No. 1’ kicks off the project, with the material dating from around the time of his 2002 debut full length ‘The Creek Drank The Cradle’. New cut ‘Everyone’s Summer Of ‘95’ is online now, and it’s an engrossing introduction.
Sparsely recorded – there’s little more than gentle acoustic guitar and Sam Beam’s voice on show –the track shares the gilded poetic flair which made ‘The Creek Drank The Cradle’ so vital.
Frankly, we’re more than a little excited to see what else the cupboard might have in store...
'Archive Series Volume No. 1' will be released on February 24th via Sam Beam's new label Black Cricket.
