Bon Iver by Bon Iver
Released: Jun 2011
Label: Jagjaguwar
Proud Wisconsinite Justin Vernon is the rare star to truly stick to his roots -- by identifying every song as a place, it's as though he's reminding himself to stay grounded. Bon Iver is all ambiance: not as stark as 2008's For Emma, Forever Ago, but just as riveting. And though Vernon employs similar instrumentation, it's with greater aplomb: the pitter-patter of a snare; the weaving of horns, synths and guitar; and that inimitable falsetto manipulated into its own class of emotion. The lyrics melt together, but they reveal a still very modest man: "And at once I knew I was not magnificent."
