Boomkat Product Review:
Culled from recent LP ‘Kiss Each Other Clean’, ‘Tree By The River’ is an apt indicator of the kind of summery folk-pop Sam Beam has made his calling card over the last few years. Chock full of 70s references (basically the entire track is like basking in a sunny love-fest) this is gleefully retro, but neatly stands up to his back catalogue without sounding too clichéd. For fans of his older, simpler material 4AD have packaged this single with a fab acoustic version. Aaaah bliss.
