Wednesday Reading: Bon Iver
Our newest contributor offered a few background tidbits on Bon Iver and their frontman, Justin Vernon, in response to the announcement that they would be performing as a part of the Dark Was The Night show. I wanted to share some follow up material for those interested in reading some more about Bon Iver and where Justin Vernon comes from. I know I'm not alone on this blog in having a soft spot for the woods of Northern Wisconsin, so it's fun to hear the stories of Eau Claire, WI and surrounding woodlands.
Read Sasha Frere-Jones' writeup from the Jan. 12, 2009 New Yorker: Into The Woods.
Stereogum has an interview with Justin Vernon that touches on his hunting and love of the woods. Read it here.
