Iron & Wine In Studio At A.V. Club (Video Still)

[photogallerylink id=67771 align=left]This month, Sam Beam played a Sold-Out XRT Show at the Riv and a Live from Studio X performance (which you’ll hear on XRT in the near future). XRT favorites, [lastfm]Iron & Wine[/lastfm] also made some time for the A.V. Club where Sam decided to cover [lastfm]George Michael[/lastfm]’s “One More Try,” which he calls a great 80’s tune that was just “masked by production.”

The band had originally intended to cover “Islands in the Stream,” a cheesy classic by [lastfm]Dolly Parton[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Kenny Rogers[/lastfm]. You might notice [lastfm]Marketa Irglova[/lastfm] of [lastfm]The Swell Season[/lastfm] singing backup during this session.
