IRON & WINE / Call it Dreaming

Konačno Sam Beam sa prvim konkretnim izdanjem još od 2013. i izvrsnog albuma “Ghost on Ghost”. Novo izdanje izlazi vrlo skoro za SubPop i zove se “Beast Epic”.

Slušamo “Call it Dreaming” čitav tjedan kao powerplay i kolektivno se pitamo kako taj bend može biti toliko jednostavno lijep. Možda je odgovore najbolje pronači između redaka službene objave i informacije o albumu od glave i bradurine benda, Sam Beam-a:

“I must confess that I’ve always shied away from album introductions citing the usual “dancing to architecture” cop out. Speaking to their own work is uncomfortable for many artists, but I’ve made a new album called Beast Epic which is important to me and I wanted to take a moment to talk about why. I’ve been releasing music for about fifteen years now and I feel very blessed to have put out five other full lengths, many EPs and singles, a few collaborations with people much more talented than myself, and made contributions to numerous movie scores and soundtracks. This is my sixth collection of new Iron & Wine material and I’m happy to say that it’s my fourth for Sub Pop Records.

It’s a warm and serendipitous time to be reuniting with my Seattle friends because I feel there’s a certain kinship between this new collection of songs and my earliest material, which Sub Pop was kind enough to release.

I have been and always will be fascinated by the way time asserts itself on our bodies and our hearts. The ferris wheel keeps spinning and we’re constantly approaching, leaving or returning to something totally unexpected or startlingly familiar. The rite of passage is an image I’ve returned to often because I feel we’re all constantly in some stage of transition. Beast Epic is saturated with this idea but in a different way simply because each time I return to the theme I’ve collected new experiences to draw from. Where the older songs painted a picture of youth moving wide-eyed into adulthood’s violent pleasures and disappointments, this collection speaks to the beauty and pain of growing up after you’ve already grown up. For me, that experience has been more generous in its gifts and darker in its tragedies.

The sound of Beast Epic harks back to previous work, in a way, as well. By employing the old discipline of recording everything live and doing minimal overdubbing, I feel like it wears both its achievements and its imperfections on its sleeve. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed experimenting with different genres, sonics and songwriting styles and all that traveled distance is evident in the feel and the arrangements here, but the muscles seemed to have relaxed and been allowed to effortlessly do what they do best.”

It’s unfortunate that we live in a society where the value of people is quantified by likes, followers and views….



Jako dobar osjećaj kad možemo pratiti rast i odrastanje benda kojeg smo još 2015.g. predstavili na splitskom radiju na cesti, i sa punim povjerenjem im prepustili stage.

JOHN WIZARDS / Muizenberg


Jedno od najljepših prošlogodišnjih glazbenih iznenađenja, John Withers i njegova Cape Town klapa u bendu John Wizards i tom ludom blendu afrobeata, fragilne elektronike i svemirskog soula.

United Sounds of Joy – The Sun That Hides a Darker Star


Ovotjedni powerplay jest The Sun that hides a darker Star, najavna skladba s još neobjavljenog, nastupnog albuma projekta United Sounds of Joy, iza kojega stoje Michael J. Sheehy i Alex Vald, dvojac koji nije surađivao već više od 15 godina, točnije od raspuštanja njihovog matičnog sastava Dream City Film Club.
