Here’s a short NPR write up on Bon Iver (HT: Dan Adamson); 

In For Emma, Forever AgoBon Iver‘s Justin Vernon sings in a heartbreaking falsetto. Vernon wrote the album’s songs while living in a remote cabin one winter in northwestern Wisconsin, where he’d gone to exorcise some inner demons. For Emma, Forever Ago perfectly captures the isolation and chilly heartache of the period in which it’s recorded.
