Iron And Wine: 'The Shepherd’s Dog'

7 / 10 Forget about its dodgy foreign policy and vacuous celebs, people like Sam ‘Iron & Wine’ Beam are what America is really about. This is multi-layered eclectic pop, dipped in folk, country and rock. Joey Burns and Paul Niehaus from Calexico take part on ‘The Shepherd’s Dog’, dovetailing neatly with Beam’s vividly personal lyrics and ear for gentle, haunting melody.
