Iron and Wine- Home Sessions '01 and '02

Includes demo versions of songs from Sea and The Rhythm, In the Reins, and Endless Numbered Days. I like some of them better than the actual versions. Something about Sam Beam's voice lends itself to crappy 4-track recorder noise. If you like Creek Drank the Cradle, you have to get this.

Mirror- Or, So, Now

This is a Japanese instrumental band very similar to Toe. A little more aggressive and rock-ish. Very good, worth a listen. (Link updated: 4/28/09)

Death Cab- Narrow Stairs (for real)

This is actually the new Death Cab album. I enjoyed it, although I must say it's probably my least favorite Death Cab album. It's a little boring to me. The lyrics are still good, as is Ben Gibbard's silky voice caressing my thighs, and there are definitely some really good songs. Check it out.
