    Loved Wild Lost

    Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers' much-anticipated sophomore album is titled Loved Wild Lost. The band teamed with producer Brian Deck (Iron & Wine, Modest Mouse, Josh Ritter) on Loved Wild Lost and it's their first time working with an outside collaborator. The result is their most compelling collection of songs to date. The richly layered sound forms the ideal foundation for Bluhm's soaring vocals and increasingly powerful songcraft. Further color comes from San Francisco's Magik*Magik Orchestra (Death Cab for Cutie, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Walkmen), whose complex arrangements serve to amplify the indelibly universal themes of Loved Wild Lost.


    "Loved Wild Lost is a sincere and sophisticated collection of songs steeped in tradition, but of its own time," says Nicki Bluhm. "After three solid years of playing as a band across the country, we have had time to learn, reflect and grow. This album displays a departure into the deeper and more contemplative themes of people in transition and the struggle to retain the energy and optimism of youth as life becomes more complex."


    "The longer something moves away from its inception point, the more it takes on a life and a narrative of its own," adds Nicki's husband and the band's musical director, Tim Bluhm. "In these songs, I think you can clearly hear that happening; idealism and optimism losing control to the forces of inertia and a life of constant traveling. Happiness becomes an intention and love becomes a long-term study of oneself and of one another."

    Beast Epic

    I can whine about it all but I won't.
    -Samuel E. Beam

    The first Iron & Wine song that I ever remember hearing was Dead Man's Will, originally featured on the Yeti 1 compilation CD. Its hushed eloquence and unadorned beauty lent it a sort of soft power*,a triumph of instinct over overstatement. That was in 2001.

    In 2017, Beast Epic, Iron & Wine's fourth album of new material for Sub Pop and it's sixth overall, recasts soft power as a series of vignettes, observations and regular old songs that redeem through joy and a certain expectation of grace.

    Even the instant classic, Bitter Truth, with a lyric as pained and direct as any I've heard from Iron & Wine, is leavened with background vocals recalling The Jordanaires. Sam Beam has called Beast Epic his most personal album to date. It is the first Iron &Wine album that he's produced since The Creek Drank The Cradle,though the results are vastly different. This album brims with surprise flourishes, classic touches and an appealing confidence that is evident on songs like Call It Dreaming.

    After a decade and a half of prodigious expression and exploration,recording as both Iron & Wine and eponymously, Sam Beam confessed that he has finally figured out how to make records. He hadme fooled all along.

    Beast Epic will be available worldwide through Sub Pop Records. It's my favorite Iron & Wine album by a mile.

    - Jonathan Poneman

    Iron & Wine's Beast Epic was written and produced by Sam Beam,and recorded and engineered by Tom Schick at the Loft in Chicago inJuly 2016 and January 2017. The musicians who played on Beast Epic include longtime Iron & Wine collaborators Robert Burger (keys),Joe Adamik (percussion), and Jim Becker (guitar, banjo, violin,mandolin), along with bassist Sebastian Steinberg (Soul Coughing and Fiona Apple), and Chicagoan Teddy Rankin Parker (cello). Beast Epic was mastered by Richard Dodd in Nashville, Tennessee.

    Woman King

    Aside from the immediacy and intimacy of his recorded work, there is one thing clear about Iron & Wine's Sam Beam: he is wonderfully and seemingly effortlessly prolific. In just short of 2 years he has released 2 full-length albums and two EPs. Recorded in August 2004 with Brian Deck at his Engine Studios in Chicago, Iron & Wine's latest release, the Woman King EP, is striking both for its broadened palette (percussion, piano, violin, even electric guitar all crop up here) and its thematic focus on female characters both archetypal and personal. The latter is mostly coincidental, a larger batch of songs yielding recurrent imagery when pared down for this EP. That negotiation with the sexual other might be best summed up with a line from My Lady's House: Thank god you see me the way you do/Strange as you are to me. And, the increasingly complex beauty of Iron & Wine's albums might best be summed up by the following, from SPIN (in a review of Our Endless Numbered Days): It all works because Beam is a fearlessly accessible songwriter, framing his melancholy in concrete imagery and solid, inviting melodies. He writes with the self-confidence of a man at peace with his gauzy gufts. He sings like a father talking to a child he respects or like a husband to a wife he adores. Beam has given us his second straight masterwork: self-assured, spellbinding and richly, refreshingly adult. Here's his third.

    Archive Series Volume No. 1


    16 Previously Unreleased Early Home Recordings


    Iron And Wine's 'Archive Series Volume No. 1' is the first in a
    series - Sam Beam will be gathering otherwise unreleased
    home recordings, covers, live sets, and curiosities from his
    entire career as Iron And Wine and releasing them on his own
    label - Black Cricket Recording Co.


    This first release taps into a set of songs created before Sam
    was Iron And Wine, when he was making music without the
    public in mind. The songs on 'Volume No. 1' came to life at the
    same time as those selected for Iron And Wine's debut album,'
    The Creek Drank The Cradle' (Sub Pop, 2002, 197K Sales ToDate).
    Performed and recorded at home on a 4-track cassette
    - the songs on 'Creek' were only 11 of the many crafted by
    Sam prior to his debut. Some of this material has been widely
    bootlegged, but has never received a wide-spread or proper
    release.


    'Archive Series Volume No. 1' collects 16 of these
    unreleased early home recordings for the first time.


    This initial chapter in the 'Archive Series' has been digitally
    transferred from the original cassettes and packaged in
    gatefold artwork featuring the Bird of Paradise Quilt (licensed
    from the American Folk Art Museum).


    Recommended for fans of "The Creek Drank The Cradle"
    and "Around The Well.

    Didn't He Ramble

    Didn't He Ramble, the second solo outing from acclaimed singer songwriter Glen Hansard, will be released September 18 via Anti- Records. The new album is his first in over three years and follows 2012's solo debut Rhythm & Repose, which Billboard hailed as "Hansard at his most engaging." Didn't He Ramble was produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens), a frequent collaborator of Hansard's, and Grammy winner and former Frames band-mate David Odlum (Paloma Faith, Tinariwen). The album, which was recorded in New York, Dublin, Chicago and France, is Hansard's most intimate and elegant record since his work in Once and features guest appearances by John Sheahan (Dubliners), Sam Beam (Iron and Wine) and Sam Amidon. Glen Hansard is the celebrated principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the influential Irish group The Frames. Whether busking the streets of Dublin, where he got his start, or headlining a gig, Hansard has garnered a reputation as an unparalleled frontman. Hansard is also one half of the acclaimed duo The Swell Season. In 2007, he and Czech songstress MarkÉta Irglová took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Falling Slowly" off the Once soundtrack. In 2013,the Broadway adaptation, Once The Musical, won eight Tony Awards including the top musical prize. Most recently, Hansard has won critical acclaim for his moving interpretations of the songs of Jason Molina of Songs:Ohia.

    Around The Well

    Collecting songs ranging from out-of-print to never-before-released, Around the Well spans Iron and Wine's earliest sessions which yielded the 2002 debut The
    Creek Drank the Cradle through material recorded for 2007's The Shepherd's Dog. The triple LP Around the Well collection is broken up into two sections. The first half is an assortment of hushed home recordings, unedited and raw, and the second highlights moments captured in the confines of proper studios with the help of other musicians, friends and engineers. The album's title comes from a line in the song The Trapeze Swinger, a fan favorite which was written for and included in the movie In Good Company. Three more songs written and recorded for the film finally make their appearance here as well: Belated Promise Ring, God Made the Automobile and Homeward, These Shoes. Around the Well also brings together hard-to-find covers such as The Flaming Lips' Waitin' for a Superman and New Order's Love Vigilantes, along with one of Iron and Wine's earliest originals, Sacred Vision.

    Garden State Soundtrack

    The soundtrack to Zach Braff's Garden State is nearly as much of a piece with the film as the similarly sweet, quirky combinations of sound and vision in Wes Anderson's films and soundtracks. Garden State, however, is more modern in its outlook and more emotionally direct, with a mixtape earnestness belied by using not one but two songs from the Shins' Oh, Inverted World. New Slang is an obvious choice, as the song just seems to grow in stature as time passes, but Caring Is Creepy, Oh, Inverted World's vulnerable, ever-so-slightly unhinged opening track, is not, and adds to the personal, diary-like feel of the album. The bright poignancy of the Shins' tracks stands out even more among the low-key melancholy of songs like Coldplay's Don't Panic, Remy Zero's Fair, and Colin Hay's I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You. The inclusion of Hay's track, Bonnie Somerville's Winding Road, and the Cary Brothers' Blue Eyes shows that Garden State doesn't go for the hipster, too-cool-for-school poses that one might expect from the soundtrack of a hot indie movie, even with the inclusion of Iron & Wine's cover of the Postal Service's Such Great Heights. Still, there's something of a collegiate feel to the soundtrack, especially with the re-rediscovery of Nick Drake (One of These Things First) and Simon & Garfunkel (The Only Living Boy in New York) as well as the tentative forays into electronica and trip-hop like Zero 7's In the Waiting Line, Frou Frou's Let Go, and Thievery Corporation's Lebanese Blonde. Perhaps this collegiate feel comes from the fact that those years are often the time when many people are the most ready and willing to explore music that is new to them (but not necessarily new), but, as the success of Garden State's soundtrack shows, any time can be the right time.

    In the Reins

    Three years ago, Iron And Wine's Sam Beam entertained the idea of recording with Calexico founding members Joey Burns and John Convertino as the backing band for what would have become his debut record. Due to unavoidable situations, that recording didn't happen. Finally, after much acclaim for both bands, recording for In The Reins took place in December of 2004. It's a collaborative affair that features seven Sam originals with the backing of the full Calexico band and vocals by Joey Burns. A truly harmonious affair with equal parts Iron and Wine and Calexico to satisfy fans of either or both. These tracks offer something new and exciting beyond what the listener has come to expect from either act.

Mission Bell, which was produced by Joey Burns of the acclaimed band Calexico, displays both range and cohesion, an array of emotions unified by Lee's eclectic taste and distinctive vocals.



    With a remarkable set of guests including Lucinda Williams, Willie Nelson, Sam Beam (Iron & Wine), Priscilla Ahn, Pieta Brown, and James Gadson, and the musical backing of Calexico, the album marks the arrival of Amos Lee as a mature artist who continues to explore his musical and thematic interests.

    For Emma, Forever Ago

    Pronounced "bohn eevair; French for "good winter" and spelled wrong deliberately. This debut is centered around a particular aesthetic; Justin Vernon, the primary force behind Bon Iver, moved to a remote cabin in the woods of Northwestern Wisconsin at the onset of winter, alone for three months. This solitary time fed a bold, uninhibited new musical focus. All his personal trouble, lack of perspective, heartache, longing, love, loss, and guilt that had been stockpiled over the past six years was suddenly purged into song. The NY Times called this record "irresistible", and it was given a "Recommeded" rating by Pitchfork. RIYL: Iron & Wine, M. Ward, and Elliott Smith.

    Edge Of The Sun

    Calexico is no stranger to negotiating borders. For
    the better part of two decades, eight albums, and
    countless trips around the globe, Joey Burns and
    John Convertino have crossed musical barriers with
    their band, embracing a multitude of diverse styles.
    For Edge of the Sun, the band's keyboardist, Sergio
    Mendoza, stepped up to co-write and arrange certain
    songs, ultimately co-producing the album along
    with Burns, Convertino, and longtime associate
    Craig Schumacher: It was Mendoza who suggested
    that Calexico physically cross an actual border for a
    songwriting retreat to the historic Mexico City borough
    of Coyoacán.


    In view of the fresh creative perspective provided
    by the band's journey to New Orleans to make its
    previous album, Algiers, Edge of the Sun's Mexican origins would seem destined to have a major impact
    on the album. The writing here shows Burns and
    Convertino's ongoing pursuit of the profound melody,
    creating music at once hauntingly accessible
    and rich in instrumental texture. With guests including
    Sam Beam of Iron and Wine, Ben Bridwell from
    Band of Horses, Nick Urata from Devotchka, Carla
    Morrison, Gaby Moreno, Amparo Sanchez, multi-instrumentalists
    from the Greek band Takim, as well
    as Neko Case, Edge of the Sun weaves a dense tapestry
    from its international roster. "Madrid, Nashville,
    Tucson, El Paso, Berlin; it's an eclectic mix,"
    says Burns. "This album is about pushing through
    the blue to brighter days. Calexico has always had
    that element of hope, going back and forth between
    a positive outlook and embracing desperate or dark
    themes that I think we all share."

    On The Wreath

    International debut album from Tucson, Arizona based Andrew Collberg. The Swedish born guitarist and singer is truly of the most gifted songwriters since Elliot Smith and Badly Drawn Boy. On The Wreath is a stunning album somewhere in between Swedish pop like Kings of Convenience or The Cardigans and The Go-Betweens, Galaxie 500, The Kinks or Bob Dylan. Produced by Nick Luna (Iron & Wine, Calexico and Robyn Hitchcock).

    Upper Air

    The follow-up to 2007's acclaimed Hymns For A Dark Horse. Upper Air moves away from the singular sound and sentiment; each song is a unique, beautiful piece. The arrangements are subtle: acoustic guitars, organ, piano, autoharp, violin, percussion, upright bass, and more are used throughout. This music has the spirit of Richard and Linda Thompson, the currency of Devendra Banhart, and the addictively sweet melodicism of Iron & Wine, but it churns with an underlying energy closer to a Beirut or something more raw, more wild.

    Numun

    Johanna Warren is a songwriter based Portland, Oregon. Her new album, nmn, will be released worldwide on Team Love Records May 19, 2015. In Johanna's words, "This album is dedicated to the moon: by honoring her phases, I am restoring balance to my body and making peace with the cycles of all natural things; and to the divine feminine: by collectively cultivating her, may we restore balance to our world. Although Warren has lent her vocal talents to artists like Natalie Merchant and Iron & Wine, she identifies primarily as a songwriter. An intuitively self-taught guitarist, she channels powerful songs in weird time signatures and melancholic open tunings, weaving adept finger-picking with acrobatic vocal lines and carefully crafted poetry, in reverence of her patron songwriting saints Elliott Smith, Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake. God has his plans, but I've got mine, and little good will come to those who stand in line" - Johanna Warren, Noise. Approaching music as a potent healing modality, Warren cultivates and honors the physically healing properties of sound and the spiritually healing powers of artistic expression. One cold winter evening in the waning weeks of 2014, Johanna and her touring partner Mitski (Double Double Whammy) passed through the Team Love gallery space in New Paltz, NY. Johanna invited the crowd to sit down on the gallery floor for her set. She requested the lights be dimmed as she lit a white candle and burned some sage. With only the candlelight to illuminate her face and separate her from the audience, she opened herself to a crowd that was swiftly transformed from unsure and vaguely uncomfortable to enraptured and mesmerized. These moments are the signature of Johanna's live performances, in which she consciously strives to provide listeners with a portal to an alternate realm in which healing can occur. Sound and light, scent, physical space, and the web of subtle energies created by a room full of human bodies are all elements of the universe that Johanna controls and shapes. She performs the same delicate manipulations within the world of nmn, an oceanic voyage from dark to light and back that is rich in sensual language, riveting self-reflective candor and surreal sonic landscapes (created entirely with acoustic instruments and found objects played by Johanna and her engineer Bella Blasko in an empty apartment unit). However, despite stepping into the role of High Priestess for the sake of creating art and facilitating group experiences, she warns us not to attach to any divisive illusions: You say I emanate some strange magnetic power, but don't be drawn to me-I may be here today, but soon black moss will cover over my dead body. Whether singing about her own mortality (Black Moss), updating the tedium of the party that Patti Smith first told us about (This Is Why) or daring one to imagine a world that transcends our notions of "the duality of wrong and right" (True Colors), Johanna Warren is a songwriter of daring vision. Her forthcoming album nmn flies into timeless space, focusing our gaze deep into the vastness of the heavens.

    Enola

    When you're the main songwriter and driving force in a successful band, you often find yourself
    creatively stifled. Your fans have certain expectations, and therefore you have an obligation to
    deliver to them an album that meets their expectations, fits in their comfort zone, all while
    growing and maturing as an artist. The problem with this is, true artists are capable of so much
    more, music to them is an art, and the urge to create something new and exciting is something
    that they can't suppress. Ace Enders found that success, both critically and commercially during
    his tenure as the main songwriter of The Early November. The band went on to sell over 450,000
    albums (3 of which sold over 100,000) And as much as Ace loved penning rock classics such as
    Ever So Sweet and I Want To Hear You Sad, he wanted more, he wanted something different.
    He wanted to be able to write songs that were more experimental, and creative. He wanted to
    work in his own studio, on his own schedule and create songs that were truly important to him
    and a pure reflection of who he was as an artist. These desires grew until they finally manifested
    into I Can Make A Mess, Ace Enders' solo project.


    I Can Make A Mess, isn't just a flash in the pan one off solo album. Over the past 9 years Ace
    Enders has recorded 4 full length albums, he's had his songs in commercial movie trailers such as
    Must Love Dogs and has toured the country with bands such as All American Rejects. His newest
    masterpiece is titled Enola and it's set to come out June 11th 2013. The album is passionate,
    and personal, experimental and honest, it's a must for fans of Bon Iver, Iron & Wine, Animal
    Collective and American Football. I Can Make A Mess will be appearing on the entire 2013 Vans
    Warped Tour, and will continue to tour through the fall. If you're looking for great songs, that are
    a little out of your comfort zone, look no further.
