982. Iron & Wine - The Creek Drank The Cradle

You have to hand it to Sub Pop. The whole concept behind the label in the early 90s was that you could buy a blindly buy a CD - if it had Sub Pop on it chances were it was loud and grungy. The label had no choice but to branch out... the leader of Iron and Wine, Samuel Beam, was a film professor at the University of Miami and recorded soft spoken tracks on the side. "The Creek Drank The Cradle" is a great introduction to the band, the lo-fi recording suits Sam's voice perfectly while he narrates experiences from a childhood you thought was yours.
