On vinyl for the first time, this record was Sam Beam's second release on Sub
Pop. Five songs originally recorded in Sam Beam’s bedroom from the same sessions
that gave us 2002’s The Creek Drank the Cradle. The Sea and the Rhythm includes
“Jesus the Mexican Boy,” which has been a big audience favorite at recent Iron
and Wine shows.
Sam and his co-conspirators recorded the new Iron and Wine full-length at
Chicago’s Engine Studios with Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Holopaw, Red Red Meat).
