Iron & Wine - Time After Time



If I only knew how to add more of his songs to this post.  Sam Beam is a polymath; he can do just about anything.  Writer, musician, film maker.  I'd like to go on and on.  You can watch a tiny desk concert of his at NPR on youtube. Or you can watch other videos of his there.  Or, you can listen to my favorite song of his, Swans And The Swimming.  His new album drops next week.

PS ~ I love his video with the flamenco dancers, something called A Boy With A Coin.  I am agog at those whom are genius at their crafts.

  1. That's glorious, Donna. Yes, yes, yes. That song has always been so haunting anyway, but this is a really striking take on it.

  3. Some people seem to get an unfair allocation in the talent stakes don't they? And how lovely when they share it with the rest of us.

    1. I still can't figure out how to download Swans And The Swimming to my iTunes library on my iPhone. He sings many songs with some lady named Jesca that are out of this world. I don't know what I'd do without music in my life Child.
