wednesday; bon iver

in the spirit of trying to do anything but finish my notes for sunday's talk, i had to write this quikc post to say that I am overwhelmed by Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago. what an incredible record... it's been awhile since an artist has leaned out of the headphones and grabbed me by the heart... home recorded during a four month seclusion during a snowy Wisconsin winter, the album sounds about like what you'd expect from that statement, only WAY better. The dynamics are fierce, the songs memorable and the emotional pull undeniable. Enough to make me start using capitalization. I highly recommend you check it out, on iTunes or otherwise. I wonder if the record is available on vinyl?
