It all started with a cabin in the woods of Wisconsin, with a performer in solitude for a few months in his dad’s cabin in Wisconsin, using leftover gear from an album he recently produced with another band. From the solitude came a distinctive and fresh voice, named after a purposely-misspelled salutation from the TV program Northern Exposure.
Now it’s four years, one album, the occasional soundtrack song and an EP later, and now Bon Iver has released an eager-anticipated second album. This time around, it’s the sound of that cabin writ slightly larger, with a few guests involved in the process, and yet still intimate in scale. Check out the self-titled album by Bon Iver, this week on WTTS OverEasy.
