Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop Perform "Sailor To Siren," "Know The Wild That Wants You" & "Every Songbird Says"

"Love Letter For Fire was," writes Stephen Thompson, "at least in part, inspired by the pair's desire to make songs that function as conversations rather than soliloquies, and their work backs that up" — Review: Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop, 'Love Letter For Fire'.
    Hoop and Beam trade bits of the lyric rapidly, occasionally blending their voices as they build to a cooing earworm of a chorus. With the help of producer Tucker Martine and a smart, subtle band, the two achieve a fine balance — of songwriting sensibilities, of time in the spotlight — in the service of songs that feel at once fresh and timeless.
