I still listen to this a lot. I liked it at first, but didn't think I would have liked it more than For Emma. Well, now the tables have turned.

I listened to this album today and loved it like usual. I wish I could make out more of the lyrics though, I think of the vocals similar to Jonsi's vocals, in the way that they're basically used as an additional instrument. He could be singing about anything and I'd love the album, but I'd like to be able to make out more than the odd sentence.

Yeah, definitely. I'm pretty sure he's said that that's the intention in an interview too.

Michicant has become one of my favorite songs. It's so perfect in my mind.

Quote:
Campbell: What is the latest with Bon Iver? What are you up to these days?

Vernon: Winding it down. I look at it like a faucet. I have to turn it off and walk away from it because so much of how that music comes together is subconscious or discovering. There's so much attention on the band, it can be distracting at times. I really feel the need to walk away from it while I still care about it. And then if I come back to it - if at all - I'll feel better about it and be renewed or something to do that.

I'm going to be so disappointed if there isn't another run of U.S. shows.

Edit: Watching the Radio City set, Justin says those will be their last shows in the states for the foreseeable future. I'm gonna go lock myself in my room and cry now.

He's just going home to write a new record man. Think about how extreme they've been touring.

Um...that seems pretty clear cut to me.

Yeah. I can read, thanks. I just don't think he's going to leave Bon Iver behind. There was 3 years in between For Emma and Bon Iver, Bon Iver. I'm fairly confident we'll see another Bon Iver record in the next 5 years. Even though that's waaay too long.

Regardless i just hope Justin has some sort of project we'll be able to hear soon. Perhaps a DeYarmond Edison reunion ;). I cannot imagine a world without Justin Vernon. His music has influenced me greatly.
