First Listen: Iron And Wine, 'Ghost On Ghost'

npr excerpt
A dozen years into a career with few missteps, 
Beam still lets his songs and sound morph and evolve; 
more than ever, he's a songwriter versatile enough to pack huge ideas 
into simple arrangements and vice versa. Even if his next album finds him 
at the head of a 100-piece symphony, he'll still build its arrangements around 
accessible emotions, with a deceptively soft touch and turns of phrase that cut to the marrow.
