The man behind the indie folk name Iron & Wine, is no other than Samuel Beam, and 35 year old South Carolina native. His music is known for it's poetic lyrics, behind the soft guitar, or banjo, or both, creating a perfectly relaxing vibe. Some may find it too relaxing though, as each song very similar to the other, without much variety. But the music is perfect for chilling out, or maybe your just feeling nostalgic, and want to listen to the quietly spoken words that Beam sings, almost like he's telling you a story around a fire. One of my favorites of his, today's song, Passing Afternoon, is in my opinion, the essential track for any Iron & Wine listener.
