Bon Iver – 22, A Million
Whether you pronounce it like a Scottish man referring to a pretty girl called ‘Ver’, or like a French man proclaiming ‘Good!’, to his friend Iver – we all know Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) are pretty fucking cool.
Vernon is cool 22 times over, a million times over. You get it.
From auto-tuned alternative goodness to experimental glitchy folkiness – this is a peculiar album. But they pull it off so well.
Dreamy, deeply-felt and kind of never-ending.
No wonder there was so much bloody hype.
This time, you better be believing it.
Rating: This is more than just ‘bon’, Iver. C’est FANTASTIQUE!
