Sam Beam, aka Iron and Wine is back with a new album, Ghost on Ghost, out April 16 on Nonesuch/4AD. “Lovers’ Revolution” is the first song taken from it and it’s jazzier than anything he has done before. Can’t say I saw this coming but on first listen it sounds fantastic. Just look at that bass. By the end of the song, I already changed my mind about what my most anticipated album of the year is.

My dear friends from Blessed Feathers, who released an album on Cakes and Tapes around this time last year will put out a new record, Peaceful Beasts In An Ocean Of Weeds next October 9. But first, they teamed up with Peter Wolf Crier to do a pretty good cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Porcelain”.

The new album will be released as hand-numbered, limited-edition digital vinyl discs. All pre-orders of the album placed before street date will receive a free copy of the new Summer/Fall 2012 issue of frontman Donivan Berube’s literary zine, Sleeping in a Torn Quilt / Dreaming of Gold. I own the first issue and the zine alone is totally worth the money you’ll spend on the record. Also, go see them live if you’re around:
