    Got a light?

    Got home last night listening to this in my car and became so relaxed that it was like I ceased to exist and it was just the album playing and me wrapped in its beauty. I then slept in my car for 4 hours lol.. This is really good and I haven't even had enough time to let it hit fully

    Welcome to Bon Iver, Wisconsin

    If Bon Iver plays my hometown, there's a good chance I will never recover.

    Amazing read. Can’t wait to get back Eau Claire soon. P4k always knocks these cover stories out of the park.

    Always such a relief to hear your idols discuss anxiety so openly


    “Being a Wisconsin boy, you get to drinking, you know?” he tells me in the car, eyes trained on the road in front of us. “I was hanging out on the edge of that stuff a little. Maybe over the edge a few times. More than a few times.” This moment rhymes with the one that famously sent him into seclusion to make music from his misery all those years ago. But instead of retreating into himself to make another miserable-guy-with-an-acoustic-guitar album, he took a couple months off drinking, got into therapy, got on medication, and, as he sings on the new record, “stood a little while within it.”

    “It’s so corny,” he tells me, “but you got to love yourself and be calm and happy, because if you don’t do that, you’re going to be angry at the people around you for somehow not giving it to you.” This is the crux of i,i: finding yourself in other people. Incidentally, it’s one of the most personal records of Vernon’s career.

    Cool to hear the story behind the "I fell off a bass boat" line

    "I was yeeted by an ATV" probably wouldn't have fit as well lmao

    My initial impressions were that this is very good. My current impressions is that it's fucking perfect. Is it fall yet? I need to hear this as the Wisconsin leaves change.

    Can you fucking imagine sitting in a room with everybody that’s on “U” and they’re all standing around Hornsby on a grand piano while they all sing it?

    Fuck.. I need something like this to happen on tour
