A Beginner’s Guide to Iron & Wine

While it’s been almost 8 years since Sub Pop released The Shepherd’s Dog, the last record that we worked with Iron & Wine on, we remain huge admirers of the work of Sam Beam. With the release of Archive Series Vol. No. 1, we decided to compile a playlist that we’re calling “A Beginner’s Guide to Iron & Wine” to introduce/reacquaint fans to the evocative and beautiful sound of I&W.

Listen to “A Beginner’s Guide to Iron & Wine”

Archive Series Volume No. 1 features 16 home recordings from the same period as his stunning 2002 debut album The Creek Drank the Cradle

The album was digitally transferred from the original cassettes. It comes packaged in gatefold artwork featuring the Bird of Paradise quilt housed in the American Folk Art Museum. 

Order Archive Series Vol. No.1 here.
