Smoke Notes

Justin Vernon AKA Bon Iver now releases his second full length self titled album. Featuring 10 new songs penned by Vernon, the album expands the group's sonic palette beyond the rustic acoustics of the debut into a lush landscape of silky electric guitars, beautifully intricate keys and subtle horn and string sections while keeping the ghost choirs and densely layered vocals intact that Bon Iver has become so known for.

Painstakingly crafted over three years, the album was recorded and mixed at April Base Studios, a former veterinarian's clinic in Fall Creek, WI, converted into a recording studio by Vernon and his brother. Bon Iver regulars Sean Carey, Mike Noyce and Matt McCaughan contributed vocals, drums and production; Rob Moose (Antony and the Johnsons, The National) helped with arranging and strings; and Jim Schoenecker and Tom Wincek (who have previously collaborated with Vernon under the Volcano Choir moniker) provided processing. The album also features the pedal steel of Greg Leisz (Lucinda Williams, Bill Frisell) and a horn section including Colin Stetson (Tom Waits, Arcade Fire), Mike Lewis (Andrew Bird, Happy Apple), and C.J. Camerieri (Rufus Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens).

· “Fully realised in its ambition, ‘Bon Iver’ possesses all of the austere beauty and understated emotiveness of its predecessor”- UNCUT *****

· “He’s out of the woods and the view is beautiful.” Q ****

· “This time, Bon Iver’s musical palatte is a far broader, full-blown band affair…“The sense of disorientation is welcome, almost soothing” FILTER ****
