This week is going to be a doozie! Though the past few weeks have also been filled with memorable shows, it's been a while since I've seen quite this many of my favorite bands in town all at once. Bon Iver (playing 4 nights at Radio City Music Hall), Wye Oak , Field Mouse , Oberhofer , Efterklang , Dr. Dog (with Kishi Bashi ), Austra , The Echo Friendly , the list just goes on and on. Even more, this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, there's a [...]

PopMatters 's Corey Beasley can't knit you a blanket, but he can do the next best thing: here are five classic wintertime records to help you through the big chill. What makes an album suited for winter? Should it be the type of record that encourages you to dig in for the season, fortify yourself with blankets and heavily spiked cider, call December through February a wash, and pick things up in March? Or should it be an album to help warm you up, get you moving again, and distract you from all that disgusting brown snow piled up [...]
The ethereal sounds of Bon Iver's latest single "Calgary", taken from the bands self titled second album, are translated into an imaginatively reflective music video.

Filed under: News , New Music PA Photos Justin Vernon has announced the follow-up to Bon Iver 's acclaimed 2009 debut album 'For Emma, For ever Ago' is to be self-titled and released in June. Most of the 10 tracks on the new record seem to take their titles from place names, perhaps reflecting the adventures Vernon has experienced since emerging from Wisconsin. These include guesting on Kanye West 's current album and [...]
Dovrebbe - finalmente - arrivare nei negozi il prossimo mese di giugno l'atteso successore di "For Emma, Forever Ago", primo (e unico) capitolo della discografia di Justin Vernon , più noto come Bon Iver . Un'attesa di quattro anni, interrotta solo dall'Ep "Blood Bank" del 2009, che ha consolidato la fama del suo talento, ma ha fatto disperare non poco per le sorti di questo nuovo lavoro. Paure giustificate, visto che lo stesso Vernon ha recentemente dichiarato al Rolling Stone di aver attraversato un lungo e brutto periodo di stasi creativa ("A un certo [...]
Every album is a product of time and place, but For Emma, Forever Ago more than most. Bon Iver (an intentional mis-spelling / adaptation of "Bon Hiver", French for "good winter") is the work of Justin Vernon, who spent three months alone in a log...
Bon Iver "Flume" "Lump Sun" "Skinny Love" "Wolves (Act I & II)" "Blindsided" "Creature Fear" "For Emma" "Re: Stacks" Toutes ces chansons font parties de l'album For Emma, Forever Ago (il manque juste "Team" et "Wisconsin") que j'avais chroniqué peut-être un peu trop brièvement l'année [...]
What's your preferred vocal style? And what vocal style or trend makes your skin crawl? Sure, most of us will be charitable and say we're catholic in our tastes, that we like all sorts of singing styles. But, come on, let's be honest, there's always one to which we are drawn, one that if we went through our music collection, we'd realize we've been choosing over others. Or perhaps it's easier to know what we don't like. For myself, and with few exceptions, I can't stand vocals that are wispy and fey. They [...]
The reflective woodsman will be sharing stage duties with... uh... the Indigo Girls, apparently.
I hope we all know Bon Iver by now. If not, he released one of the most popular albums last year in the indie scene. Well, January 20 his latest ep will be released. You can pre-order it right now. So rush to the link and ...
The new Bon Iver Ep Blood Bank is great, but it leaves me wanting more. During my quest for more Bon Iver material to hold me over, I stumbled upon this. It's a great version of "Flume" done in the studio of 89.3 The Current. If you missed it: Bon Iver - Beach Baby Bon Iver - Flume (Live in the MOKB studio) Bon Iver - Blood Bank And still the best Bon Iver [...]
Bon Iver — Flume … a favorite of 2008
Como se explica? Não é porque ele acabou com a namorada e se refugiou numa cabana do pai. Não é porque ele nasceu em Wisconsin e lá vive, fazendo música com a raíz daquele povo nas melodias. Pois, sim, aquele povo barbudo, de gorro, boné, camisa xadrez, às vezes macacão, que dirigem caminhões pra sobreviverem, que são brucutus caipiras (muito devido à agropecuária, que por bastante tempo sustentou a região toda), aquele povo tem história (é que a gente, você também?, imagina que os norte americanos roubaram a história dos outros, que não têm uma própria, rs).

Justin Vernon, aka Bon Iver is a lonely lumberjack. But a loveable one. The short version is that Vernon - Wisconsin - were getting tired of bandmates and set up a home in a remote log cabin. He lived a self-imposed primitive lifestyle, chopping firewood and hunting wildlife and that awesome man-stuff you do when you'd want to be completly authentic and in touch with your innerself. In three
If you were at The National show in the Olympia last night, you will have heard this song serve as the introduction to the band. Much has been written about Bon Iver's recording methods of hibernating in a remote cabin in Wisconsin for three months during winter. It's inevitable because these songs on For Emma, Forever Ago are desolate and brooding, questioning and a little lonely. Iver sounds like a man who hasn't talked to anyone in a long time. Even his name means "Good Winter", slightly bastardised from the French [...]

NPR streamed a Webcast of the Black Mountain / Bon Iver show Tuesday night in Washington D.C. By Wednesday, a podcast of the Bon Iver set was available. It's great timing because I just picked up the newly released Bon Iver record, For Emma, Forever Ago (at eMusic on Jagjaguwar ). Well, I know it's not exactly new seeing as how Justin Vernon self-released it last year, but it's new to me because I didn't give it a whirl until just this week. And I'm growing obsessed. [...]
