Artist: Iron and Wine
LP: Kiss Each Other Clean
Today’s song is ‘Walk Far From Home’ and it is the opening track from Iron & Wine’s latest LP “Kiss Each Other Clean.” It is a stunningly beautiful number that walks the line between slow song and a subdued ballad of some sort. One thing is for sure, the melody will become stuck in your head and you will probably be required to satiate that with repeated listens. What’s really mesmerizing is Sam’s floating background vocals, that supplement his central singing lyrics so well. And when they throw in the gritty bass lines it juxtaposes the somewhat-soaring vocals in an adroitly thought out manner, it’s just marvelous. Enjoy!
