If Tim Hardin were an acoustic folk singing group right now (and not dead, would help), he'd be Iron and Wine.
They're on subpop. New EP dropped this week. Great "folk" band. Always well recorded.
And, after 20 years, The Posies finally got it right---ALL of it. The new "Blood/Candy" displays the same great music, lyrics and vocals. Now, however, they finally got rid of that "grungy thing" that always made their instrumental accompaniment tracks sound like glass-encrusted mudcakes hitting a wall.
They shouldn't have come from Seattle. It was the wrong place in the 90's for a pop band, no matter how good they were!
