I'll never forget the first time I heard "Swans and the Swimming" back at the start of my heady teenage years. The gentle cascade of Sam Beam's vocals rolling atop the leafy textures of his ever present acoustic guitar set the scene for what would become a life-long love affair with folk music.
Now in 2015, Sam (a.k.a Iron and Wine) has a new record, Archive Series, Volume 1 and a new video to accompany the effortlessly nostalgic "Everyone's Summer of '95". Fans of Beam won't be disappointed by the evocative marriage of imagery and music, thanks in no small part to directors Erin Elders and Jeff Tomcho.
Sit back and absorb yourself into memories of your summer of '95.
