Iron and Wine

Monday, March 2, 2015 | by Caitie Tieman

Not newly created music, but newly released, Iron & Wine’s Archive Series Volume No. 1 dropped last week and is comprised of tracks recorded in the same era as those on his debut album, The Creek Drank the Cradle (2002). As one of my most favorite artists, I’ve willingly followed every musical move Sam Beam (the bearded, brilliant wonder that is behind Iron & Wine) has taken –even those escalating the size of his band towards an almost unrecognizable sound and venturing along pop-ier and jazzier turns – however, returning with this collection to his early days of coarse acoustic guitar and murmured poetry (for his lyrics ARE poetry), I’m reminded exactly why I fell so in love with his music at the very start.
