something beautiful on a wednesday

I listened to this little NPR Tiny Desk concert of Sam Beam and Jesca Hoop on the airplane home from NYC this weekend and fell in love.. particularly with the last song, “Every Songbird Says” . and these two. there’s something about their voices together, the complex harmonies and the way the air floats around them so they almost feel suspended in all of their magical tones.

If you don’t know, Sam Beam is the frontman behind Iron & Wine.. I spent many a day feeling anxg’st ridden and listening to his music while rain fell. While I think you can find some hints of his old flair in here in the first song or two, this new creation of songs with Jesca Hoop are something unique and stunning.

As long as people out there in the world are making things like this, I think there’s a lot of hope and delight to be found.
