Default Bon Iver



Gorgeous acoustic album For Emma, Forever Ago was released last year and slipped under the radar. For some reason his Myspace page gives him a Neo-Soul label and while he definitely has a great voice, his target audience suggests something different. Melancholic and upbeat at the same time. Listen and love.

I almost didn't check this out because of the name (I don't know why either), but he is pretty good isn't he?

I have to say that his debut album is stunning. Simple as that.

Was finally coerced to listen seeing as how everyone and their grandma seems to be raving about them. Really gorgeous stuff. I'd say the tag "neo soul" is accurate, it's acoustic but there's definitely something highly soulful in his vocal interpretation.

My favorite songs are Flume and Re: Stacks at the mo.

For Emma, Forever Ago is such a beautifully simple album, my friend sent it to me today and I really do love it
Skinny Love is probably my favorite song
