Stream: Bon Iver, Bon Iver

 

During a time in the indie music world where electronic based movements such as dub step are beginning to reign supreme–it’s rather refreshing to hear a more minimalist approach. To hear music that is based upon lyricism and musicality rather than electronic beats that are seemingly more so designed for a club setting.

One of the groups that we all know and love that truly exemplifies vocal ability, as well as stellar song writing and performing is Bon Iver.

Personally, I have always been a fan of the group–not just for the lyrics but the whole atmosphere.

The group really capitalizes on Justin Vernons vocal ability by producing and mixing their songs in a way that genuinely showcases Vernons voice and the groups lyrics–which is rather refreshing in a time where over production is quite common.

I discussed my admiration for the group (and for well executed cover songs) in a post a few weeks ago for their cover of a Bonnie Raitt tune– and not only did I enjoy their rendition of I Can’t Make You Love Me, but I also spoke of my anticipation for their new album– Bon Iver. 

The entire album is now available for stream on their website as well as NPR! So before I write a riveting review on the piece–I figured I’d share it with the world first.

Enjoy.
