Sam Beam (of Iron and Wine) and Jesca Hoop just released a digital-only single featuring the smoldering new track “Milky Way,” which was recorded during the Love Letter For Fire sessions, and a sublime cover of the Eurythmics classic, “Love Is A Stranger.”
Beam says of ‘Milky Way”: “It was the first song we started working on together and it’s my very favorite melody of the bunch.”

Mass Gothic’s brand new 5-song Sup Goth digital EP is available today, and was recorded in New York this past spring, shortly after the release of their superb Sub Pop debut, Mass Gothic.
Where the group’s self-titled debut chronicled the depths of depression, Sup Goth is the resulting catharsis. The EP is a collaboration between Noel Heroux and partner / bandmate Jessica Zambri, and marks the first Mass Gothic recording the pair have completed together [Listen to the full EP here].
