Actually this album came out in 2007, but it was a extremely limited self release. It sees widespread release this February.

This album is well worth your time.

Quote:
The folks at Jagjaguwar are as excited about the February 19 release of Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago as we are, which makes sense, considering they are the ones releasing it. So the label has started taking pre-orders right here. What's more, there is a pair of extras involved.

First, anyone who pre-orders from the label will receive a large color poster [pictured above] with his/her copy of the record. Second, anyone who orders the album from iTunes will receive a bonus track called "Wisconsin".

There's also one more treat, non-musical in nature but totally free. Justin Vernon, the man behind Bon Iver, has started a blog called Creature Fear. Currently, its only post is a diary entry from the making of For Emma, but we're told that Vernon plans to update it regularly.

The Bon Iver touring machine is currently resting, but it will start up again in February and March for shows with Jagjaguwar/Dead Oceans family members Black Mountain and Phosphorescent.

Re: Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

I really Like Bon Iver I downloaded Skinny Love a few weeks ago and now am waiting for the album ...


On a Side Note:
Looking at that itinerary just proves once more that nobody worth seeing ever comes west ... they usually just get as far as St. Louis and then skip to California ... anyway awesome artist ...

Re: Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

It would have made mine but I was slow to the party and didn't get it until 2009.

If you do take its original 2007 release date, would it be AOTY? (I guess that question is, is it better than Boxer?)

Re: Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

Maybe. Sound of Silver came out that year too, I believe. Dear Science as well. It was a great year for music. Probably the best year of the past decade.

Re: Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

Oh Damn, Person Pitch and Strawberry Jam too? And Burial's Untrue.

It wouldn't be my #1, but it made my Top 10.

Re: Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

I thought Dear Science was 2008?

Neon Bible was 2007 too. I remember seeing The National, Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem all in 4 days at the beginning of 2008. Awesomeness.
