7/10 gbar 10th May 2017

While Sam Beam (aka Iron and Wine) has gone in a different direction from his magnum opus, The Creek Drank the Cradle, he's decided to go back to some basics on The Shepherd's Dog. It has a perfect mixture of traditional folky Sam Beam, such as on "Resurrection Fern" where it almost borders on country music, with haunting new Sam Beam, especially on "Boy With A Coin". Songs like "Carousel" is the perfect transition between the old and the new, combining his finger-picking lilting melodies with electronic flourishes and polished production work. What the album may lack in excitement is often made up for in his songwriting finesse and smooth-as-cream voice.
