Just listening to their 2002 effort, the Creek Drank the Cradle. Laid back, easygoing, interesting lyrics - great music for a night in; I'm impressed.

the Nick Drake comparisons don't bear up really, I could never get into Nick but he was much more rooted in english folk. Based on the Iron & Wine debut I have (which against all odds I like) he's coming much more from the americana side of things. it's got banjo ffs

Default Calexico and Iron

I agree with Iron and wine being a Calexico fan. Then it happened. In The Riens EP came out and now I'm hooked. The way these two bands phrase lyrics, blend sounds and take the edge off this Album is a must listen.

I personally think it's his best work, but Shepard's Dog is right behind it.

I just got their Live At Norfolk album, the songs sound closer to rock on this album than any other (it's amazing.)
