B-sides and rarities compilation from Austin-via-Florida-based Southern Gothic/ indie folk songwriter Sam Beam. Disc 1 is lower-fidelity (more like Creek Drank the Cradle) than the 2nd (more like Shepard's Dog), in general. Disc 2 has more instrumentation, in general. Some absolute gems and a few duds, but overall really high quality. |
My picks: Disc 1: 4, 5, 7, 8!, 9 FCC: 2-12
Disc 2: 1, 5, 7, 12!
