Ohhhhh dear. Bon Iver's much awaited followup to For Emma Forever Ago arrived this past Tuesday.
Blood Bank is 4 tracks of SOLID GOLD. The only real problem is, it's not enough. Though I've only listened to it a few times I know it's bound to be played as much as For Emma was this past year. For those of you who don't know Bon Iver's music it's kind of across between older Iron and Wine's guitar stylings and a falsetto voice comparable to a raspier Ben Gibbard meets Elliott Smith living in the higher octaves (best analogy I can think of). Anyhow, if you haven't heard Bon Iver, you probably will. It's only a matter of time before the surrounding hype explodes onto radios and TV shows everywhere.
