Iron & Wine
Recovering acoustic crooner Sam Beam's muse keeps expanding further on his fifth album as Iron & Wine, Ghost on Ghost. Ditching the dark and anxious tones of its predecessor, Ghost sounds airy and warm, with irresistibly syrupy tunes like "The Desert Babbler" reinventing Beam as an orchestral pop crooner par excellence. Seemingly crafted with lazy Sunday mornings in mind, the album occasionally lacks verve but more than makes up for it in impeccable craftsmanship and easygoing charm. 18+.
