Bon Iver

It’s been a long time coming, but Wisconsin soul-folkie Bon Iver’s debut LP, For Emma, Forever Ago, will be released on the Jagjaguwar label February 19th. A number of you may have seen the album pop up on numerous best of ’07 lists, and for good reason, as the album saw a very limited self-release (500 self-made copies) last year. The Jagjaguwar edition is the same running order, etc., but with new artwork.

  1. It’s the best thing I’ve heard – front-to-back – in a long, long time.

  2. Wow! “Skinny Love” is by far the best song I’ve heard so far in ’08. I better pre-order this pronto.

  3. “skinny love” is one of those songs i leave on repeat.

    can’t wait to listen to the whole cd again. it used to be available as a stream on virb

I was wrong. Of course, there was the original My Old Kentucky Blog post that prompted Rob to write about the going-ons in Wisconsin. Since then (presumably because of the CD release) they have been written about all over the place – Brooklyn Vegan, Minneapolis Fucking Rocks, Stereogum, An Aquarium Drunkard, and most recently, Berkeley Place.

  5. This is the best record I’ve heard in so long, and bares STRIKING similarities to a classic Neutral Milk Hotel album…

  6. for some reason i put off listening to it, even though many people suggested i would absolutely love it. which is maybe why i put off listening to it – the 16 year old in me took over. anyway, yeah, its a wonderful record that for the past 3 months hasnt been far from my ears.

  7. […] Go get it February 19. Grab two tunes from Aquarium Drunkard to listen to on the way. […]

  8. […] Buy Justin Vernon’s break-up (and mono) inspired album, download some tracks, watch his videos, or just listen while you read your favorite blogs. […]

  9. […] Bon Iver has been the toast of the Internet the past few months, and rightfully so, but here I want to spotlight, Megafaun, comprised of the members of his former band DeYarmond Edison. […]
