Dog New Tricks

Though I somehow overlooked Iron & Wine’s 2007 album, The Shepherd’s Dog, at the time of its release, I recently rediscovered it via iTunes Genius playlists. I’ve been listening to it pretty heavily ever since, so I was happy to find out that earlier this year Iron & Wine posted 8 acoustic demos of tracks from The Shepherd’s Dog as a free download on the official website.

Head over there to grab the zip file. The album version of my personal favorite, “Boy With a Coin,” is also available as a free download (as well as several other Iron & Wine tracks) on the Sub Pop Records label website.
