Album Review
Reviewed 2006-02-08 
Whispered neo-folk singer songwriter mixed with southwestern indie rock. Iron & Wine is mostly acoustic guitar, banjo, slide guitar and vocals. Calexico is more of a rock set up plus pedal steel slide guitar, trumpets, marimba. So combine all that instrumentation and that’s what you have here. I’m not sure I think Calexico adds anything on some of the songs here, but in my book Iron & Wine basically can’t do anything wrong.
My picks: 1, 5, 7 FCC: 3
1. med-slow 6/8. nice pedal steel guitar. Spanish (Italian?) operatic singing.
2. slow. nice pedal steel guitar. banjo and harmonica later on.
3. FCC (“fuck ‘em” 2x) medium tempo. Nice harmonies. trumpets
4. slow-ish, bluesy guitar riff. organ. speeds up. mostly instrumental/ solo. Slow w/ vocals again at the end.
5. med-slow and soft. lots of nice harmonies and slide guitar.
6. medium tempo. muted trumpet(s).
7. slow. prominent acoustic guitar. marimba and piano in the background
