Bon Iver has just recently dropped a new album and we can’t remember the amount of times we have had it on replay. The same lyrical masterpieces we have come to truly admire can be found etched throughout the entire album. This time however, with simple additions of experimental vocal instruments, gives the listener a more in depth appreciation for Bon Iver’s artistry.
With subtle references to Imogen Heap’s ‘Hide and Seek, one of our favourite tracks is ‘715 Creeks’. The use of vocal instruments transforms this track to an iconic sound. We feel goosebumps immediately. Another track to seek out is ’33 God’. This track reminds us of why we fell in love with Bon Iver years ago. His approach to how his songs are structured is ultimately what sets him apart in the art of song making. Producing a fresh and completely new sound with each stage of his development as an artist is an utter delight to watch. We appreciate you Bon Iver.
We are men and we can listen to Bon Iver we want to.
