#3 of 2007: Iron & Wine - The Shepherd's Dog

Thirty-One Words: Iron & Wine continues to expand its sound with hippie atmospherics, distortion, and additional instruments to flesh out the alt-Eagles groove. Thankfully, the core of Beam’s hushed vocals and sad songwriting remains.

The one song that makes it worth $17.95: "Resurrection Fern"

Pitchfork Says: 8.6
