Bon Iver

I am going to be the biggest Bon Iver fan in the world.

Bon Iver's brainchild Justin Vernon and myself both grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and although we've never met directly I don't think I have been at Vernon's previous band's [Mount Vernon and DeYarmond Edison] concerts. His latest group is Bon Iver which has their debut album For Emma, Forever Ago coming out February 19th.

Bon Iver call themselves "neo-soul" on their MySpace page...on the song "Skinny Love" I am hearing TV on the Radio-like vocals minus the beats. Great stuff and I can't wait for the March 26th show in Seattle.
