Iron and Wine, the recorded Word of one Samuel Beam, Miami, Florida; is one of those one-guy-and-his-tapedeck affairs. Taken as a whole, The Creek Drank the Cradle, Iron and Wine's debut CD, is an ode to an older South; a part of America that is defined by "traditional values," pastoral imagery and arcane manners. Or maybe that's just what I want to hear. You'll soon be the judge. What we can tell you without a moment's doubt or hesitation is that Iron and Wine create the most arresting and seductive music heard in years.
