shades and nuances and all things that sound beautiful

I'm laying in bed with huge noise-cancelling headphones on that my dad bought me, emotionally tripping out to Bon Iver's...Bon Iver. That self-titled stuff always gets me. 


To say the first listen through is therapeutic is an understatement. If every human on this earth was given a copy of this album (along with a pair of AKG's), world peace just might occur. 
It's nuanced in a way that's almost oxymoronic. Gentle, yet powerful. Singular, plural. Tears of joy and frustrated laughter. K I'm done pretending I work for Pitchfork.

I can't wait to see the Tiny Desk concerts and Take Away concerts that come from this sophomore album. The only heart-wrenching thing is, he's not touring anywhere near Washington this year. Sooooo...guess I get to fly to London to see him. Who's with me?

Your musical recommendations always turn out to be such a treat. I'll find some time and check this one out. Maddie, sometimes your prose is almost musical itself. That 'Pitchfork review' is pure (informative) poetry.
