Iron & Wine On World Cafe | March 4, 2011 |

Sam Beam, better known by his stage name Iron and Wine, released his first album, The Creek Drank The Cradle, on the Sub Pop label back in 2002. He wrote, performed, recorded and produced every track by himself at a studio in his home. Featuring acoustic guitars, banjo and slide guitar, the album's music has been favorably compared to that of Nick Drake, Simon and Garfunkel, Neil Young and Ralph Stanley due to its alt-country and progressive folk arrangements.
 
Earlier this year, Beam released his most adventurous album and most successful record with Kiss Each Other Clean, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Kiss Each Other Clean is a combination of Iron and Wine's best traits and Beam's experimental streak.
Hear two songs from the new album, as well as a couple oldies, performed live in the World Cafe studios. (link)
