Current listening: Bon Iver “Wisconsin”

“For Emma For Ever Ago”  is up there at the top of the favourite records of the year for me next to “Sun Giant” and “Ark 1”. This is the b-side to the recently released “For Emma” single and I can’t believe that he left it off the album because it fits in there perfectly. World weary and intimate and beautiful and feeling like a walk through a leafless forest with twigs and branches underfoot. I gather that Wisconsin is his home state.  The album is so beautiful. Another of those great records that don’t give up their secrets immediately. Five or six listens at least to get there.
