Iron and Warner

the death of an indie rocker.

Iron & Wine, aka Sam Beam, has been on indie Sub Pop since inception.  I&W pulled a rat out of a hat and notified us all today that they just signed to Warner Bros.  The new album, Kiss Each Other Clean, is due out in January 2011.

Why would they choose to join a major label at this point in their already successful career?  Discuss.

Hopefully he signed on with good terms for I&W (and rights to their own masters).  Other than that, I’ll buy their new one, but I won’t like supporting WB as I did Sub Pop.
