Sasquatch 2011: Iron And Wine, Live In Concert

May 29, 2011

Language Advisory: This is a live concert recording, and may not contain language suitable for all audiences.

Less than 10 years ago, Iron and Wine was a one-man show: a vehicle for the whispery bedroom folk of Sam Beam. It's hard to fathom an act less likely to balloon into the many-tentacled colossus Iron and Wine has become, complete with backup singers and a horn section. Without losing Beam's flair for fatalistic poetry, the band's recent Kiss Each Other Clean is tailor-made for the sort of blown-out live experiences it's been creating all year.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, Iron and Wine performs here as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
