The Content Goes International, Iron & Wine debuts new songs

So things here at the Content are going international this week. While half of the crew is sticking around in Californialand the other half is parading down the Champs-Elysees being fairly successful at trying to escape away.

Today's post is going to be short and sweet due to how late it is and I am afraid that I will come across as only partially comprehensible. The Content has been enjoying a nice surprise from Iron & Wine (via Rawkblog) of showcasing some new tunes from his upcoming release entitled The Shepherd's Dog due in August. I know its not just me but it is hard to not fall in love with life when listening to Iron & Wine. The melodies and timbre that exudes Sam Beam are full of life that is found in those simple instances that we come across on a day to day basis. The Santa Ana winds mysteriously whipping the tops of waves, holding up the hollows of their underbellies long enough to curl around some smiling surfer. Those same strange winds filling your windsheild with leaves blown from trees miles and miles away. The silence before the sunrise. The moment she opens her eyes. I obviously can't wait for some new music to soundtrack my life.
