Song of the Day: Bon Iver "Skinny Love"

Who is this guy? He's from Wisconsin, and he's brilliant. Just to let everyone know, Wisconsin + Music generally does not equal brilliant. There are definite exceptions out there, and that is most of my friend's bands, but really, metal, jam band rock and bad funk run rampant in these parts. Beware.

Justin Vernon spent the winter recording For Emma, Forever Ago, and then hit's out with this amazing raw recording. I've already listened to skinny love like 5 times this morning.

Here is that song being performed live.



Here's a link to his myspace.

His band is titled Bon Iver, or Bon Hiver if you speak french. It means good winter.

Cheers.
