Lt Dan here with my DJ pick of the week from Live On The Green vet Iron & Wine.
Singer songwriter Sam Beam aka Iron & Wine are following up their 2018 Grammy-nominated full-length Beast Epic with the aptly titled EP, Weed Garden. Having gone over three years between releases prior to Beast Epic, Weed Garden arrives in short order, but right on time for Iron & Wine fans.
The six-song EP features material that was part of the writing phase for Beast Epic, but for various reasons went unfinished. The term “weed garden” could easily imply that which doesn’t belong, for principal songwriter Sam Beam, it was more about getting more “into the weeds” on a creative process to finish the material. Weed Garden serves as the perfect companion piece to last years full length. The tones and themes all feel part of the larger narrative that presented itself on Beast Epic bringing this collection of characters full circle. Listen to lead off track “What Hurts Worse” below and let us know what you think!
