Who hasn’t heard of Iron and Wine these days. Sam Beam’s voice is breathtakingly beautiful and his beard isn’t so bad either! All jokes aside, this somewhat newer song is less complex than his earlier, hit singles (“Boy With A Coin”, “Flightless Bird, American Mouth”) but that doesn’t mean it’s less meaningful. This song, Tree by the River, is the third track from the album Kiss Each Other Clean. While the studio version is amazing on it’s own, I prefer the acoustic version a bit more.
