what’s your favorite
iron & wine song?

one thing is for sure. shows that have been held all around the world are creating some beautiful art to promote music. they get it. music is art.

along the cape cod shores, we were driving in my car. he asked, “where do you want to go?” and i told him, let’s just get lost. we took the best roads just to see the ocean, we didn’t know where we were going but didn’t care. listening to amazing sounds, when it came to one of my favorite iron & wine songs, we stopped to sit in silence and awe watching the waves crash. covered in simplicity, those guitars circled until that special ending came in, everything felt right, and the sky was perfect.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    There’s something just so magical about Iron and Wine. The way Sam sings about love and relationships; the connections between people.

    The sea and the rhythym means so much to me.

    the b-side “hickory” is my favorite I&W song – it’s Sam at his best.

    “Trapese Swinger” is not far behind though.

    Hands down, his best songs have to be “passing afternoon” and “bird stealing bread”
