Iron & Wine – Monkeys Uptown

January 22, 2011

There is no doubt that Iron & Wine has tried hard to change their sound and expand into great new territory. This is a bold move, but I believe it is going to pay off. With new, more developed instrumentation (listen for the xylophones in this track), Iron & Wine really succeeded in making a great folk-rock record. (“Kiss Each Other Clean” was added to the Loved List with a rating of 8.3)
