Vinyl Love: // Bon Iver, Bon Iver

Starting a new little series here on the ol' blog about the vinyl records I love so dearly. First up is this little gem:


Bon Iver, Bon Iver by (you guessed it!) Bon Iver.

In 3 words: poetic, emotional, monumental

Favorite tracks: Holocene, Wash., Towers

I hesitate to call any record my "all-time favorite"--it's just such a huge label to live up to--but especially a record as recent as this one. Every time anyone asks what my favorite album is, though, this is the one that pops in my head immediately. So I think it has claimed that label for itself, and I'm okay with it. I can honestly say that no other record has ever emotionally moved me as much as this one--"Holocene" made me cry the first time I heard it. It wasn't a sad cry; it was like seeing the mountains for the first time, or coming back home after a long bout of homesickness--when you just cry because everything seems so beautiful and so much bigger than yourself.


  1. Oh yay! Justin got me this one for Valentine's Day this year. I've always been a BIG Bon Iver fan, but hearing him on vinyl for the first time was like a religious experience. I'm partial to For Emma, Forever Ago, but his self-titled is also one of my faves! Awesome first pick!

    1. Thanks! I love "For Emma," too--it's actually on my list for a post! :) Have you listened to Volcano Choir? It's another one of his projects, and "Repave" is SO GOOD.

  2. I love this pictures!! Vinys are amazing!! :)
