Iron & Wine with NOMO 

Christmas came early this year for fans of Sam Beam, in the form of a 36-second peek under the wrapping of Kiss Each Other Clean (Warner Bros.), his forthcoming fourth full-length release as Iron & Wine. Due in January, the album, judging from its short, soaring trailer, is set to further the expansion that started with 2005's In the Reins, an eclectic collaboration with Arizonan desert-rockers Calexico, and cemented on 2007's The Shepherd's Dog, which sent rippled, concentric circles of sound — wafting Hammond organs, bluesy campfire stomps, hiccupping handclapping and backward guitar silhouettes — around the former film professor's surreptitiously cinematic finger-picked acoustics and Pink Moon-walking vocal prayers. Opening is NOMO, a party-starting University of Michigan-born nonet led by multi-instrumentalist Elliot Bergman and, neck-and-neck with Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, a contender for the best horn-swinging, conga-slapping ensemble currently blowing north of the Tropic of Cancer. Tickets $22. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
