Bon Iver

do not walk, run to buy this album.

Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver) does it again. No it is not recorded in solitude in a cabin in the middle of nowhere in the dead of winter this time. It has both lushness and sparseness, highs and lows, and really makes me reflect on what I’m doing with my life as it plays. I have had it as my soundtrack continuously over the last week or so.

It was accidentally posted on itunes before the scheduled release date because of some faux pas, was then live streamed on NPR for a few weeks prior to its release, and Vernon was on a few late night shows covering Bonnie Raitt and whatnot.

Standout tracks– Perth (the snare drums are spot on); Wash. –which brings tears to my eyes. and Michicant. (what a punny word eh?) The album ends on this throwback 80s soft-rock/quiet storm bit filled with synthesizers. so enjoy.
