Smoke Notes

It wasn’t planned. The goal was to hibernate and recover from the break up of his last band, escaping to simple work, quiet and space in a remote cabin in the woods of North Western Wisconsin at the onset of winter.
For 3 months Justin Vernon aka Bon Iver (bohn eevair, French for “good winter” and intentionally misspelled) filled his days with wood splitting and basic chores around the land. This special time heralded a bold new musical focus, fed by a purging of 6yrs worth of personal troubles, heartache, longing, love and loss.
The result, For Emma, Forever Ago, is the debut album for Vernon’s remarkable new Bon Iver project.
The songs sound like thick layers of lush choral drapes, with rarely more than an ancient acoustic guitar or an occasional bass drum providing structure.
Despite its complexity, For Emma, Forever Ago was created entirely by Vernon with nothing more than a few microphones and some aged recording equipment – you can hear the creaks and groans exposed in the folds of the songs – though the sound of the album seems almost orchestral in its sparse beauty.
