Song of the Day – 1/9/2011
In the same week in 2008, Garrett and I discovered both Iron & Wine and Band of Horses. Good week. I’ll give Garrett cred for Band of Horses, but I’m calling Iron & Wine my own. “Boy With A Coin” is an amazing song, and since then, I’ve very much been into Sam Beam, his beard, and his gang of musicians he plays songs with.
This song, off the new album Kiss Each Other Clean (coming out January 25), is quite a lil’ departure from Iron & Wine’s normal guitar-driven, folksy, sound. It’s got a pretty thumping beat, and almost makes you nod your head. A really cool song…enjoy!
