Love Letter for Fire, the debut from Iron and Wine mastermind Sam Beam and Manchester-based singer, songwriter, and Shearwater associate Jesca Hoop, is pitched somewhere between Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris and Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley. Produced by Portland’s Tucker Martine, the warm, intimate affair features Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche and Stranger Genius Award–winning violinist Eyvind Kang. At its worst, there’s an old-school formality to Beam and Hoop’s deliberate give-and-take, but that’s also its biggest strength (in publicity photos, Hoop sports ankle-grazing skirts and buttoned-up blouses). The duo isn’t out to score points with the cool kids, and they’d fail if they did. If anything, they could’ve released this record during the height of the country-rock era, and it would’ve fit right in. KATHY FENNESSY
