Sam Beam softly counts us in to his sixth studio album Beast Epic with the beautifully sung "Claim Your Ghost". The album as a whole feels like a return to roots for Iron & Wine. Maybe life mirrors art as this album also marks the return to Sub Pop Records. Beam mentions on the Sub Pop site "It’s a warm and serendipitous time to be reuniting with my Seattle friends because I feel there’s a certain kinship between this new collection of songs and my earliest material, which Sub Pop was kind enough to release." As the curtain draws on this masterpiece, "Our Light Miles" leads us through the exit leaving us wanting more.
