bon iver

you know julie, the call center supervisor who was just profiled here yesterday…
well, she was kind enough to write up a little something about one of her favorite musicians, bon iver…
read on, and enjoy.

“Like a quick shot of brandy warming your belly on a cold winter day, Bon Iver sparks a fire in the pit of your stomach and works his way out. His music is layered and reflective, his story-telling frank and selfless. I first found out about him when reading about “Blood Bank”, his latest EP. It was recorded in a remote cabin in Wisconsin, Iver’s home state. The EP is a follow-up to his full length, “For Emma, Forever Ago” which was released in 2008 to much acclaim. Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver) is building momentum in the US indie charts thanks to a rigorous tour schedule and rave reviews from respected critics.
His music evokes the crisp winter air along with the silence you encounter when you step outside after a brutal snowstorm. He is a single snow flake falling from a white sky, a single voice touching your soul. I encourage everyone to take a listen to Blood Bank and let it captivate you as it did me.”

LOVE BON IVER! I got addicted because they had one of his songs playing on one of my favorite TV shows, Chuck (I’m letting my geekiness show, I know) and it got stuck in my head….a week later when I still found myself singing it, I looked it up….Creature Fear on “For Emma, Forever Ago.” Absolutely beautiful! Bought the whole CD and am so glad I did. I’ll have to check out this new EP….I’m sure it’ll be great too.

Bon Iver is amazing. I saw him at Johnny Brenda’s as an opening act (for Black Mountain), and he blew me out of the water. Ever since, I’ve been hooked.
Loved this guest spot–do you often collaborate with other bloggers? If so, I’d surely be interested!
