Iron and Wine, Kiss Each Other Clean

Wow, this is a great little pop record from Sam Beam. I've got Our Endless Numbered Days and dig its bedroom-Americana charm, but haven't kept up with his later stuff. Seems he's found an indie-pop backbone, if you will. File between old Wilco, Ray LaMontagne, Sufjan Stevens, Elliot Smith, and all. Or if you file alphabetically like I do, between Interpol and Iron Maiden.
The vinyl is terrific quality, flat, pop-free, clean. Mastering and production are nice, too. Early candidate for best-of lists, I'd say.
