Noughties #66: Iron and Wine "Our Endless, Numbered Days" (Sub Pop, 2004)

Iron and Wine is singer/songwriter Samuel Beam from South Carolina. He hit the scene in 2002 with the low-fi bedroom recording, The Creek Drank the Cradle. This album was the follow-up, and the higher production budget has not dulled the intimacy of Sam's songcraft, and the extra instrumentation and harmony creates more range. What still remains is the strength and conviction of the folk songwriting, and sincerity of his breathy vocal performance.
