For Emma, Forever Ago by Bon Iver. I literally have listened to this album for hours straight, and have never tired of it. Its an acoustic/folk feel, and its pure bliss.

I've passed their 2008 album The Swimmer onto two other people and met with some contrasting remarks. One person loved it, the other person hated it and I think left the forum because of it.

Anyhow I don't really know how to classify them other than indie. They've got some shoegaze elements, but for the most part their stuff is pretty mellow, which is something that usually turns me off most indie bands, but for some reason it doesn't have that same effect on me with these guys. I couldn't find any Youtube videos and for some reason I can't create any either so you'll have to make due with their Myspace, but I really hope a few people check them out. Indie rock is one of the few genres that I really have no talking points with so when I find a band that I really like but nobody else knows about, I get frustrated because I want to talk about them...

I lol'ed at the bold statement in that quote. I find it curiously hilarious.

Do you mind passing on the album to me? Thanks.

Hey guys,

Beach House is my number one favorite, and I listen to animal collective, local natives, The XX. Any other bands you can recommend I would like?
