Bon Iver

Initially, it was my intention to focus on a single Bon Iver song (Perth) from his relatively new self-titled album, but I’ve decided I simply can’t do that. He’s just too damn good. Bon Iver is a fresh and versatile artist, demonstrated in the contrasting styles of his two albums. If you are looking for a gloomy and powerful album driven by pure emotion, I urge you to check out “For Emma, Forever Ago.” Justin Vernon (mastermind of Bon Iver) composed the entire album in an isolated cabin within the Wisconsin wilderness, recovering from a break-up and mononucleosis. While his second album (“Bon Iver, Bon Iver”) is not quite so heart-wrenching, I consider it just as strong and one of my favorite albums of 2011.
