"Isolation doesn't get more splendid than this," Mojo says of Bon Iver.
This is...the most beautiful album I've heard in a long time. Bon Iver, is Justin Vernon's alter ego. He makes acoustic, soulful musings. He made For Emma, Forever Ago.
"Bon Iver will likely bear comparisons to Iron & Wine for its quiet folk and hushed intimacy, but in fact, Vernon, adopting a falsetto that is worlds away from his work with DeYarmond Edison, sounds more like TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, not just in his vocal timbre, but in the way his voice grows grainier as it gets louder. Vernon gives a soulful performance full of intuitive swells and fades, his phrasing and pronunciation making his voice as much a purely sonic instrument as his guitar," says Pitchfork.
It sounds like lazy sad days all holed up in a log cabin, men with beards, treehuts and teepees, Americana and iced tea.
This is not the sound of a new man or crispy realization It's the sound of the unlocking and the lift away Your love will be Safe with me
He's playing the Sydney Festival in January- and I cannot wait.
