Listen: Bon Iver's New Album

Bon Iver's double-self-titled (Bon Iver, Bon Iver) is available in its entirety for streaming, and believe us when we tell you, it's everything you could have hoped for and more. Justin Vernon clings to the phantasmal melancholia conceived in the woods of Wisconsin with his familiar ghost-like vocals, adding up to the fact that Bon Iver is Emma's distant cousin.

But his sophomore album is a mixed gene-pool, bellowing post-rock in several tracks including "Perth," that might make you think of Explosions in the Sky. It's an unlikely ingredient, especially for a man who spent so much time "in the woods", and it's one that he executes masterfully. The result is something other-worldly about Bon Iver's gloomy sound, even more so than before, like it died, went to sad-heaven, and came back with a divine hand-print. Listen to the second-coming for yourself in its entirety right now.
