Published Nov 29, 2010If you were lucky enough to nab a copy of exclusive Iron & Wine's Record Store Day seven-inch single for "Walking Far From Home" last Friday (November 26), you have probably been spinning this sucker all weekend, but most of us are hearing this intense headphone experience for the first time.
The first single off Sam Beam's Kiss Each Other Clean whips distorted organs, conga drums and a choir that seems to sound about as processed as a flanged-out '70s guitar solo into the epic soft rock head trip. But somehow amidst all that chaos, the cut comes across just as soothing as his back porch Americana past. Call it a gift.
You can stream "Walking Far From Home" now on Iron & Wine's MySpace.
