"For Emma, Forever Ago" on Virb.com



Not too long ago, Justin Vernon (formerly of DeYarmond Edison) went solo and adopted the Bon Iver moniker. He then proceed to record a collection of hushed folk songs in a Wisconsin cabin. The result? For Emma, Forever Ago, one of the most understated and beautiful folk records of the year. Unfortunately, the self released disc was pressed in super limited quantities, and as a result copies remain scarce. Thankfully, Justin has constructed a Virb.com page, where the entire record is streaming. I've been listening non-stop, and I recommend you do the same. Note: Jagjaguwar will be re-releasing the album in early 2008.
