Sing into My Mouth is a covers album by Iron & Wine and Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses. Tracks include songs originally performed by Talking Heads, Ronnie Lane, Bonnie Raitt, John Cale, Sade, David Gilmour, El Perro Del Mar, Spiritualized, JJ Cale, Them Two, Marshall Tucker Band and Peter La Farge.

The album pretty much sounds just like you would expect it to, something like a fusion of Iron & Wine and Band of Horses. I would describe the music as folk rock with Beam and Bridwell sharing harmonies and swapping vocals between tracks. Overall Sing into My Mouth is a mixed bag. Some of it is really good, but there are times when it just feels more like a desiccated display of someone else's ideas. Most memorable songs include “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)”, “Done This Before”, “Any Day Woman”, No Way Out of Here”, “The Straight and Narrow” and “Coyote, My Little Brother”.
