For Emma, Forever Ago by Bon Iver

(Rock) Permanent link

There are many different ways of making a great album. Justin Vernon decided to do it by recording for over three months in a remote cabin in northern Wisconsin. The result is a haunting debut album released under the name Bon Iver, which is a misspelling of the French for "good winter."

While listening to this amazing CD, one cannot help but feel like you are quietly approaching a distraught minstrel alone in the middle of a vast forest. Vernon's voice pushes and pulls through stories of love, loneliness, and isolation against a wintery backdrop.

Fans of Iron & Wine will definitely get caught up in the sound.
