The Shepherd's Dog

Hill Country transplant Sam Beam, aka Iron and Wine, has released his newest record for Sub Pop. It's called The Shepherd's Dog, and though I haven't got hands or ears on it yet, early reports are strongly favorable.

I've been a fan of Beam for a short while, and was totally convinced of his talents after hearing his collaboration with Calexico of last year.

Check out my man Dan Oko's piece on Beam, his music, his art, and his new home, on the cover of the Austin Chronicle.
