Iron & Wine: Kiss Each Other Clean (2011)


(Warner Bros.)

RECOMMENDED

Read my review for the Metro Times.

An additional note: The review sounds harsher than is probably warranted, the consequence of its word count. Many of the songs on Kiss Each Other Clean are worthy of Sam Beam's catalog. I consider this record analogous to Broken Social Scene's Forgiveness Rock Record last year, an album that I found sorely disappointing but that nevertheless I appreciate as an addition to the BSS canon. The songs come on individually and I enjoy them a great deal. I suspect the same will be true of Clean.
