Bon Iver:: For Emma, Forever Ago on Later and further

Bon Iver released what should be the album of the year a few months ago with his stunning For Emma, Forever Ago. The album has received its fair share of accolades and unlike past records making claims to year end bests, For Emma will be played forevermore, and not remain as some tinsel strength journal entry like so much of what is out there. I’ve seen Bon Iver three times this year and let me say that this one is worth exploring. For Emma, Forever Ago is the kind of recording that makes you believe great new music is still possible. As I said a few months ago, this one has a vibe reminiscent of Bless The Weather/Solid Air John Martyn. Take a load off, kill the psychic noise for a while…..
