Between the Grooves: Consume Iron and Wine

Tune in Thursday at 2pm for a mini orchestra session with Iron and Wine. You'll hear a clarinet, bass harmonica, mandolin, the blended voices Rosie Thomas AND Oscar-winner Marketa Irglova of the Swell Season and the movie Once, and of course, the whispered, yet increasingly commanding vocals of mastermind Sam Beam.

The sonic panoramas on Kiss Each Other Clean, colored by jazz, 70's rock and other unorthodox styles, enliven the mystery of Beam's scripture shorthand. Repeated listens reveal the rewards. 

And what a treat it will be to hear these lushly layered new songs come alive in a new setting.  Iron and Wine on Between the Grooves Thursday at 2pm on WTMD.
