For Emma, Forever Ago
For Emma, Forever Ago is by Bon Iver, but that’s just a name chosen by Justin Vernon who is the amazing artist behind this record. Bon Iver is sort of french for "good winter’ and reflects the fact that Justin recorded this record in "a remote cabin in the woods of Northwestern Wisconsin" over the course of last winter.
This record has the sound of a warm fire burning in the house with the snow and wind swirling outside. The vocals are wonderful. And at times, it has an intensity that is shocking.
For those who aren’t into clicking around, here’s one more track called Blindsided.
