In the Reins

Genre: Indie Rock; Producer (group): Touch and Go

Shaggy poet-genius Iron & Wine delivers gothic ruminations on love and mortality with the searing intimacy of whispered confessions. Genre-crossing Calexico perfect a bewitching blend of country-Mex-blues that evokes the menacing charm of a border-town saloon. On the seven-track EP In the Reins, these perfectly matched temperaments have created something heartbreaking and haunting — the sonic equivalent of curtains billowing in an open window.
