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.

Fickle essentially. Head to the festival’s official website for more details and while you do that listen to the sweet strains of Iron and Wine. Both will be available on site (well maybe not an iron) Continue reading “Black Deer Festival announces more acts including (wait for it..) Kiefer Sutherland!”
