Iron & Wine's creative master mind, Sam Beam, has been whiling away the last two years of his life with the creation of his new album Kiss Each Other Clean - or one would expect that 's what he's been up to. As usual Mr. Beam's musical creations are filled with wanderlust, it's what makes him so loved by all of you today.
Calling this "Best New Music" may be misleading considering "Be Brave" comes from the Austin band's similarly-named sophomore LP--released waaaay back in February. But in my defense if this the first time you've heard The Strange Boys then it is surely "new" to you and it follows that it'll probably be one the "best" songs you've heard in a while.
