This pretty awesome blog gave me tip-off to Bon Iver (which is greatly appreciated, awesome blog!) For a week, I’ve listened to this album non-stop, and Skinny Love is easily the best song in the world.

Apparently Bon Iver/ Justin Vernon locked himself up in some shack in the boonies and then came out with this album. When I imagine that, it’s like he and all these songs were locked in a fighting cage, circling each other, both sort of frothy and googly-eyed. Either Justin would tame them into a brilliant, heart-breaking package or the songs would come out triumphant, Justin a limp, music-less skin bag. Bets were made, cheers were shouted, and eventually people just sat quietly, exhausted, waiting to see who would pass out first. Anyway, Bon Iver won! which is pretty good because I don’t know what the songs would’ve done with his lifeless body in the middle of the Pennsylvania woods. Something we don’t even have to think about.
