Music: Bon Iver, Forever Ago

by Josh Kimball

Recently, I got a flotilla of old music recorded by Justin Vernon (Bon Iver before he was Bon Iver), including self-recorded songs, as well as music from Hazleton’s and DeYarmond Edison. Just starting to dig in.

Here’s an excellent self-recorded tune from Bon Iver (well, just Justin Vernon at the time he recorded it) called “Ring Out.” It is from way, way back. He was less falsetto and more Springsteeny back then.

Anyway, go to Mr. Vernon’s MySpace page to snoop around, and by all means purchase his new EP, Blood Bank (it comes out January 20).

(Also, apologies for sending you to the tumblr for “Ring Out”; ick!)
