iTunes Review

This collaboration between Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam (of Iron & Wine) and singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop conjures a heritage country triumph. Seductive chemistry abounds on the immersive historic ballad "The Lamb", and the romance continues on the acoustic blues of "One Way to Pray", and whirling love story of "Kiss Me Quick". Interest piques when they head off-piste: "We Two are the Moon" has quirky French New Wave delivery, while "Chalk it up to Chi's" staccato, jazz rock pointedness, and "Midas Tongue" explosive breathy chemistry feel like lost Fleetwood Mac classics.

Customer Reviews

What do you expect?

In a sea of mediocrity, this album is a deadly harmonic undertow, perfectly in sync and melodically pure. A little bit country, and little bit avant folk, you won't find much better.

Harmonies of Wonder

Wow, at first I was a little apprehensive on the whole idea.
Because Hoop has always provided such philosophical and avant-garde music.
This is certainly not Hoop’s usual.
Much more Folk, but roots strain from all types of trees now don’t they?

This is actually quite a lovely album. And I taste Hoop’s lyrics pursed inside the duo.
They sound absolutely stunning together.
Each song a gorgeous take on love.

Recommended for everyone! I am so shocked this does not have a lot of ratings.
Some of the most beautiful folk duos I have ever heard.

Midas Tongue is dark and ominous, thats when I knew the album was gold.
I can see this album playing at very nice times in my life.
Kiss Me Quick is paralleling my life at the moment, and its wonderful.

Thank you guys!

I look forward to more HOOP THOUGH!
Cannot wait to see Pegasi come to life.

Amazing job.

What I've been missing

I'm a big iron & wine fan but haven't been a fan of the more recent stuff and this album is the Sam Beam style I've been missing. I had never heard of Jessica Hoop before this but I love her voice and the harmonies are great!
