Ok so, if you haven’t heard of Bon Iver then read on, if you have then you probably already own the album and know exactly what I’m about to say.
Background (care of Wikipedia):
Bon Iver is the name of American indie folk singer-songwriter Justin Vernon’s current band and most notable music project to date. The band now also consists of Mike Noyce and Sean Carey. The name, Bon Iver, is a corruption of the French “bon hiver” (good winter). Vernon independently released Bon Iver’s debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago in 2007, the majority of which was recorded while spending three months in a remote cabin in Wisconsin.
So as I said before, if you haven’t heard of Bon Iver, you will want to. Go buy From Emma Forever Ago, it is a beautiful album from this talented singer song writer. If you like things acoustic, heartfelt and intimate then you must have a listen. There is plenty of videos on youtube to if you do a quick search for Bon Iver to get an idea, one of my favourites is actually a cover of his song flume by the also very talented Kina Grannis.
