An orgy in my ears. That’s really all that can be said.
Iron & Wine – Boy With A Coin
Samuel Beam, better known under his stage name Iron And Wine, is – to put it mildly – an acoustic folk genius. Rhythmic handclaps carpeted by serene vocals, heavy bass drums and soft harmonies. Yes, this is the stuff music is made of.
I first came across this group a couple of years ago, after a friend of mine lent me their hard drive. I admit, it wasn’t love at first sight (hearing?), as back then I was more into the whole house and trance scene and this wasn’t exactly what I’d asked for when I said “hey, got some music to share?” In any case, I definitely don’t regret discovering them – far from it. Also, I’m in love with their album artwork.
Iron Wine has to date released four studio albums alongside several Eps and singles.
Boy With A Coin is the ninth track off their third album The Shepherd’s Dog, released September 25, 2008.
