How do you bust the clouds?
Grass on your back been hanging in the air
I wanna scope you out
I wanna touch your mouth when you're up there

When are you coming back?
Bird on a branch will come back home to sing
When are you coming back?
Bringing it back and singing what you bring

How do you bust the clouds?
Head on the ground and feeling what you've seen
I wanna scope you out
I wanna be your eyes and show you me

When are you coming back?
When are you gonna burn that broken bed?
When are you coming back?
I wanna see you drifting overhead

While I give this tune a solid 7, I know what yes mean. When I'm in control of the music at a particular studio, I get ribbed for playing Radio Paradise, because very often it gets into this depressing mode, and it annoys my coworkers. 
 
To me RP is what radio should be and not a bunch of commercial bullshit I could listen too this station all day long

Love this song. 
Excellent transition from Grinderman's Star Charmer to this! Great job, Bill {#Bananajam}
Some excellent tunes right now.

Overhead Mysterious 'Blooming' Galaxy - Cosmic Crash Site?
Today this song arrived on the heels of "More Than This" by Roxy Music.
First time I've heard this song, and it's mighty fine.
I likes it.

is it possible there are more people on RP that aren't impressed with amazing The War On Drugs? {#Cheesygrin}
I believe we are in minority {#Think}
this song is always a breath of fresh air to me {#Good-vibes}

Before Sam starts singing, does anybody else sort of hear CSN's 'Wooden Ships'?

This is wonderful. I think Sam Beam lives near here too.

 
I generally go out of my way to avoid hearing CSN's "Wooden Ships", but it does have a similar sound in the muted strumming of the intro and the minor chords.
Outstanding 9!
Gorgeous transition to Grinderman!

So, it is really true! 

Bill is a magician!

Disappointing. Like a penguin, nice bird but never flies.
Gave a 5.
I always get excited because from the first few bars I think we are going to hear 'Common People'.

PERFECT transition from Grinderman - compliment, Bill!

{politely}  That's not a sax, but a trumpet (or cornet) with a cup mute.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKwypw4-E9U
Fantastic stuff!!!
Push from 7-8!
Wow, very nice collaborative work! {#Sunny}

These two band are great and I love certain songs that they have written separately. This particular song, written by both groups, is very quiet, low key & a little boring. What it says is fine but nothing amazing. Zzz. (But I do like the brass.) 6.
 
At this point Iron & Wine was one guy, Sam Beam, who has since assembled bands of sorts for his own albums. But this lovely collaboration with Calexico came at a point in his development where he needed a proper band behind him. Since then Beam's output has been more daring, more robust. We get to see what he could do and what he's done since. Great thing to watch—better to hear.

just hearing the intro was enough to recognise Calexico's very distinctive drum sound and playing. Very nice.Sound of spring peeking around the corner.

Could be the beer talking, but I just changed my rating from 8 to 10.  I smell another CD purchase coming, thanks to RP.  Don't worry, I'll link from RP's site...

Ooops!  thanks for the correction.  I usually tune out when there are ANY horns involved, cannot stand blaring trumpets.  But when they have this muffled quality that I associate with "film noir", I like it.

For some reason this song is striking me as really sexy right now. Good groove!
Nice!

I think that might be a muted trumpet or coronet.
Love this song and this whole record, most especially "A History Of Lovers" and "Sixteen, Maybe Less".
I can relate to this song quite well.
Love the sax
Who made this cover art?

Indeed, instant 8, maybe it will even rise on repeated listens...

The trumpeter on this tune used a Harmon mute — only a small component in Miles's trademark sound.
 
thanks brighthue  - that trumpet is distinctive. just goes to show ya, there should be more trumpet - everyone thinks it's Miles

more horns in general, i say, while i'm sayin'


Ambient?
Very cool, nice mix of instruments.

Elokin2141, given the fact that you mention sex in your post . . . it's pretty obvious that your not Amish. That, and the fact that your using a computer, part of modern society, etc. etc. This is really good album which turned me onto both Iron & Wine and Calexico bands who are both good American artists. America does offer really good, original bands-they are just not mainstream.
Very pleasant mood throughout the song, well done! :clap:

When does the sex begin? :pray:
Probably not Miles, but maybe it's that gorgeous member of Calexico, German multi-instrumentalist Martin W. :hearteyes:
