Bon Iver – The Wolves (Act I and II)

I somehow managed not to notice that my last entry was the 100th one on this blog, so here we are, well and truly into treble figures, with entry 101. I’m kind of excited about going to see Duffy at the Bodega Social tonight (I’ve decided that her voice is better than Lulu’s, although the latter maybe had a better knack of song choice in her Atco soul days). I’m delighted that I’ve got front row seats for Lou Reed’s Berlin tour when it hits Nottingham in June. But what’s really thrilling me at the moment is the album by Bon Iver, For Emma, Forever Ago which is a haunting, beautiful breakup album, mostly recorded, evidently, while he spent four months in a remote cabin in Wisconsin. The video below gives you some sense of this, and you get to hear one of the ethereal songs, the kind that creep up and grab you when you’re not looking.
