    The folks over at Pitchfork are reporting that Iron & Wine -- the vehicle for silk-voiced folkster Sam Beam -- is leaving its longtime Seattle label, Sub Pop, for a major-label deal with Warner Brothers. Beam plans to release Kiss Each Other Clean -- the first new Iron & Wine album since 2007's The Shepherd's Dog, early next year with Warner.

    This is just further evidence that despite all the problems and "evils" afflicting major labels, they still seem to have something (money??? larger infrastructure?) that bands -- even popular indie acts like Band of Horses, Death Cab for Cutie, etc. -- want access to.
