Bon Iver’s new record, “Bon Iver, Bon Iver,” is some of the most gentle music to listen to. Whether you have just awoken for the day, or need to fall asleep from the stress and beauty of the night, this album is perfect for needing to fade away. Soft like his originals, Bon Iver always seems to maintain the untouched indie glow. Many acts come close with their sweet sounds but there is a purity in Bon Iver that can forever be relied on. Justin Vernon’s vocals keep a slow pace but harmonize within these higher scales that showcase a simple complexity, with sincere emotion all throughout each song.

…and at once i knew i was not magnificent
strayed above the highway aisle
(jagged vacance, thick with ice)
i could see for miles, miles, miles

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
