Never been a big fan of Sam Beam's Iron And Wine project as it always seemed to me like an alt. country-by-numbers affair and was obviously meant for different ears. Well on 'Kiss Each Other Clean' any assumptions I've made about the artist are clearly invalid in 2011 as this is a pop record, a tastefully performed and well informed pop record at that. I'm getting particularly excited about the second track on the album (entitled 'Me And Lazarus) because it seems to be ripping off Jon And Vangelis's 'Somehow I'll Find My Way Home' - complete with saxophone and everything. So, I'm biased when it comes to J+V but what a place to be looking for inspiration! This attitude is applauded by me, and probably me alone. There's more purist pop fun to be had with the rest of the LP too. We can all enjoy a mix of Pinback, Lambchop, Songs:Ohio, Fleetwood Mac, American Analogue Set, 10CC, Steve Miller Band and all that San Francisco counter culture stuff. My opinion of this lad is forever changed!
