Pre-Order Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago
Download: Bon Iver - "Skinny Love"
The past few weekends have been so cold here in Chicago that weekend plans consist only of doing whatever the T.V. tells us. Whether or not somebody finds us is irrelevant. Bon Iver, AKA Justin Vernon, the Eau Claire, Wisconsin-based known for his sensitive soul-folk, probably knows a thing or two about those kind cold winters ("Bon Iver" is French for "good winter", though it's intentionally misspelled). The re-release (via Jagjaguwar) of last year's For Emma, Forever Ago should bring more widespread attention to the intimate beauty of Vernon's guitar playing, as well as his affecting croon. Though the album won't physically be in stores until February 19th, the album is available for pre-order through Jagjaguwar. If you do so now, you'll get what the label is calling "fancy, offset-printed poster". Well, if it's fancy...
For Emma, Forever Ago is out on February 19th.
