If youve watched any American TV drama since 2002, youve probably heard Sam Beams wispy voice and nimble guitar-picking. But with his last two album releases, Beam has expanded beyond the sparseness of typical Elliott Smith folk parameters by incorporating a full band, fuller rhythm track, double-tracked falsetto, and imaginative loops & edits with hypnotically beautiful effects. Iron & Wine isnt just whispers and banjos anymorehear their new production-focused, enigmatic indie pop in a venue now big enough for their sound.
