Gush: Bon Iver ‘Blood Bank’

This album came out in late 2008, a few years after the release of For Emma, Forever Ago. I picked up this record, yes record, at a small record store in Arizona, before the release date!!

It wasn’t love at first listen, but I grew to love the album while cramming for an exam in spring of 2010. The song “Lost in the Woods” was later used by Kanye West as well as Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon’s other band Volcano Choir.

This album is so lovely, with the exception of “Babys.” Beyond the spelling error, I cannot get into that tune.
