Sorry it has been so quiet around here this week…I noticed this week has been a strange one, eerily quiet. Like for instance yesterday there was no traffic on my way home from work and I thought how is this possible? In the middle of the week that is just…Scary. But there was not a brake-light to be seen. Ok so I am going to go listen to some music…Care to join me? Geez my posts have been rather dorky this week as well. I’m the odd one.

I know Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) is all the rage at the moment and that is because his debut album was just released, For Emma, Forever Go and DAMN it is GOODNESS…A gentle but passionate album that has a cohesive mellow vibe that just makes me feel good inside.

    I love this record. So tender and beautiful. Jagjaguwar always release great stuff.

    I have to agree with both of you. And Wayne, Jagjaguwar has become one of my favorite record labels.

    Wow Rachel this is real good acoustic music, it reminds me a little of Newton Fulkner which is not a bad thing.

    My suggestion for today to you is Science for girls

    My iPod listing pleasure this week… have a great weekend.

    it’s mellow but with a pulse, not typical at all. i heard he was great live, too.

    David, thanks for the tips and I am glad you enjoyed Iver. Hope you have a lovely weekend as well.

    Marcy, I totally agree, “mellow with a pulse” is a great way to describe his music. I am going to try to catch him when he comes to LA, it looks like he just got through with a show in Philly.

    Hmm, with Dearest Rachel & Dearest Marcy going on about this Bob Iver guy, I guess I’d better have a listen…

  9. Rachel on February 25th, 2008 6:30 pm

    I think you will enjoy it if you are in a mellow mood of course. :)

    Also check out a nice little interview and performance @ on the In Store Performances (thanks Les).

    Also check out the album on iTunes (I know, I know…) as it has the 10th track added to the original album that is not on eMusic, etc. called”Wisconsin”
