Bon Iver

For Emma, Forever Ago is the debut of this lineage of songs. As a whole, the record is entirely cohesive throughout and remains centered around a particular aesthetic, prompted by the time and place for which it was recorded. Justin Vernon, the primary force behind Bon Iver, seems to have tested his boundaries to the maximum, and in doing so has managed to break free from any pre-cursing or finished forms.


Bon Iver (aka Justin Vernon) has released a fairly startling and a little spooky debut album. He comes across as a kind of alt-country Antony Hegerty (Antony & the Johnsons), with his high falsetto vocals. Or possibly even Prince meets Bonnie Prince Billy – as weird as that sounds! He isolated himself for three months in a cabin in the woods of Wisconsin over winter and recorded the bulk of this album, adding a few touches months later. One of the most interesting records to emerge in the last year.
