Bon Iver - Bon Iver - Bon Iver..... 2011

Bon Iver (pron: "bon e-vair") is a band founded in 2007 by American indie folk singer-songwriter Justin Vernon. It includes Michael Noyce, Sean Carey, and Matthew McCaughan. Vernon released Bon Iver's debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago independently in July 2007.

And now they are back with the second album, and what do we have... THE BEST ALBUM OF 2011.
Yes, maybe you think i sound pretentious but once you start to listen to this record you are seduced by the Venon vocals.


The difference is that now it feels more like sunrise than sunset, as if we're connecting with a musician no longer haunted by what he lost but instead tantalized by what comes next. 

Vernon said that each song on the new album represents a place. The song "Perth" was described as a "Civil War-sounding heavy metal song," the song "Minnesota, WI" was described as featuring "finger-picked guitars, double bass drums and distorted bass saxophone," and the closing song "Beth/Rest" will be "horn heavy."
