For Emma, Forever Ago

Bon_iver
If you follow my tumblog, you’ll know that I’ve been obsessed by this record since discovering it on Daryn’s tumblog on thursday.

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.

The first song to get me was Flume which I linked to above on Daryn’s tumblog. You can hear the "single" called Skinny Love on my tumblog as well as the ending track called Re: Stacks.

For those who aren’t into clicking around, here’s one more track called Blindsided.
