Iron & Wine

I saw Iron & Wine for the first time (after many years of adoration) at End Of The Road Festival in September, and my love grew into a near obesession. Sam Beam's ability to work stories into songs is something like the way my mum can knit a sock with no seam.  This song 'Rabbit Will Run' from his new album 'Kiss Each Other Clean' boasts breaking-into-the-vulnerable vocals and a (verging on Herman Dune) backing of thumb piano, sax and electric guitar...a whole new side to Iron and Wine!
