Listening: Seduced by a New Age song
Just a little bit of Wyndham Hill type music goes a long way with me. New Age, sew-age. When exposed to anything more mellow than Mark Cohn or India Arie, my ears try to close themselves. So, I was surprised when I found myself liking a song by the singer Iron & Wine yesterday. I was seduced as much by the video that accompanies the song, "Naked As We Came," at the iTunes Music Store, as by the song itself. Perhaps more.
Simon at Webmink is responsible for whatever has happened to me since I became aware of Iron & Wine at his blog.
I'm not going to describe the video because I want you to form your own opinion.
View the vid and hear the song. Let me know if I am succumbing to easy listening syndrome.
