Last Night: Iron & Wine talk "trees" on Conan

on January 25, 2011, 7:33am

France may have La Blogotheque and the “Take Away Shows” to make musicians look mysterious and musician-y, but around these parts we’ve got something much, much better. You see America, we’ve got TBS and Team Coco. Sure, Sam Beam might seems all artsy-fartsy playing songs underneath creaky floorboards, but take a peek at this video of the bearded bard from last night’s episode and try not to be entertained.

The 36-year-old Beam – better known by the moniker Iron & Wine – took to Stage 15 casually dressed in a blazer/T-shirt combo and led his seven-piece band through “Tree By The River” from one of our most important albums of 2011, Kiss Each Other Clean, which actually comes out today. The nearly three-and-a-half performance might not have featured odd camera angles or that faux-antique look, but it did boast both flute and saxophone solos. Take that France.

Check it all out in it’s full-color, crystal-clear beauty above and cop tickets to one of his upcoming shows by clicking here.
