Sounds || Bon Iver

No surprise here, many of you have heard of Bon Iver.  Lead singer Justin Vernon is a gift.  An uncanny voice that has an uncanny ability to soothe even the worst days and sometimes make good days a little worse.  Credentials?  How about he had a terrible disease in his liver, his band broke up, his relationship shattered, so he decided to go to a cabin in Wisconsin and recuperate.  Hence the birth of the album “For Emma, Forever Ago”, recorded on Shure SM57 and a Silvertone.  That’s good enough for me.
