Blood Bank (EP)
by Bon Iver
Released: Jan 2009
After receiving copious accolades for his beautifully stark debut, Justin Vernon's solitary sound gets a boost with a little help from friends. Even with a full band supporting him now, the Wisconsin troubadour still recognizes the power of a heartbreaking falsetto and an acoustic guitar. His minimalist touch is amplified with feather-light beats, slide guitar, abrupt piano plucks and layered vocals on the first three tracks. But "Woods" is where Vernon proves traditional folk can be modernly hip, juxtaposing nature-themed lyrics with the most unnatural of instruments...Auto-Tune.
