Two of the best things in life are ironing and wine, and in celebration of that fact Iron & Wine aka Sam Beam has announced a new EP ‘Weed Garden’ which comes out on August 31 via Sub Pop. The six-song release, almost more of a mini-album, includes songs that Beam worked on while writing last year’s ‘Beast Epic’ record which garnered some nice reviews all round. It also includes the track ‘Waves of Galveston’ which Beam has performed live but never released officially. You can hear the opening track ‘What Hurts Worse’ (being hit with an iron or a bottle of wine) below.
