Ok, so I’m a few days late (read: over a week) in getting this up, but unfortunately the whole “Festive Season” rush got in the way of regular posting. Anyway, Burgo’s Music Blog favourite, Bon Iver, is releasing their four song EP, Blood Bank, in January, via Jagjaguwar.
And we’ve got a first listen below.
Out of respect for the EP’s release, there isn’t a downloadable mp3 listed below; instead I’ve embedded an Imeem widget with the album’s title track included, which is a new way of doing things on this blog. For those who haven’t used Imeem before, just hit the play button, to… well… play the track (yes, you’d think that was self-explanatory, but I had to explain the same thing about another mp3 player I used to a few of my visitors earlier in the year. Sad, but true).
It’s beautiful, and if this is what we can expect from Bon Iver as a full band… well, I’m excited. Oh, and did I mention that I’m seeing Justin and Co. live in January? Yeah. Awesomeness.
Listen. Love. Support.
