    The disc is slated for release on June 21 via Jagjaguwar. It's currently available for pre-order.

    Album Review: Bon Iver ****

    Following his work with Kanye West on the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album (he contributed vocals to Lost in the World and hit single Monster), US indie musician Justin Vernon – known as Bon Iver – releases his second, self-titled album.


    His debut album, 2008’s For Emma, Forever Ago was the product of self-isolation following two breakups (that of a band and a relationship) and the catching of an illness (mono). It was a delicate album steeped in sadness, loneliness and regret – standard indie fare – with Vernon’s stunning falsetto at the forefront.

    Bon Iver is not For Emma 2.0 – it’s a new album entirely, rather than a rehashing of a winning formula. On this album, Vernon experiments with more sounds and genres. The album is more alive sonically than its predecessor. It’s meat on the skeletal frame of For Emma.

    The song titles are inspired by places – real or imagined – that Vernon believed embodied the sound he wanted to make.

    While on For Emma the lyrics were quite emotional and inward-looking, Bon Iver Vernon explores memories, people and places (real or not) through the senses – describing how a swimsuit is clinging to a woman’s body, for instance. He’s a lot more alert to his surroundings and their varying atmospheres. It’s almost as though he’s bringing memories to life through detailed descriptions.

    The opening track Perth, starts off deceptively – all acoustic and quiet – slowly building up into a marching band-style beat, as he sings in his trademark Prince-like voice: “I’m ridding all your stories/ what I know, what it is, is pouring/ wire it up/ you’re breaking your ground”.

    Towers sounds like a gothic country song – a strange description but rather fitting. The lyrics have a touch of masochistic sensuality to them as well: “For the love, comes the burning young/ from the liver, sweating through your tongue/ well, you’re standing on my sternum/ don’t you climb down darling”.

    Fans of For Emma will appreciate the more stripped-down songs like Michicant (one of Vernon’s best vocal showings), Wash. and Holocene (where Vernon repeats the line “and at once I knew I was not magnificent”).

    On Minnesota, WI and Hinnom, TX Vernon’s vocals tread into his work on the West album – all deep, dark and arrogant. First single Calgary is one of the highlights on a brilliant album, building up beautifully from feelings of uselessness (“I was only for the father’s crib/… I was only trying to spell a loss/ I was only for your very space/… I was only for to die beside”) to an emotive, raw and confrontational last minute-and-a-half.

    The album has more varied influences – it’s not solely buried in indie and folk. It’s a lot more soulful and even harks back to 80s R&B/ pop in the final track, Beth/ Rest (which would work if it was a Lionel Ritchie song, but is simply out of place on this record).

    Bon Iver is musically superior to its predecessor. Bon Iver is clearly more confident in his artistry. It only makes one wonder what the next album will sound like if he’s developing a distinct sound so early in his career.

    While For Emma was easy to box and label, Bon Iver requires a bit of consideration before it can readily be called “acoustic” or “indie”. It may not be the kind of album a listener catches onto immediately, but it does creep up on you.

    The Jill Scott/Bon Iver Phenomenon: Top Albums Without a Top 40 Hit

    This week on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Jill Scott and Bon Iver arrived at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, with their "The Light of the Sun" and self-titled sets. For Scott, it marked her first topper on the list and for Bon Iver, it was the Justin Vernon-led act's best rank ever.

    While it may seem like the two have nothing in common, they actually do share an unusual feat: neither act has produced a top 40 single on the Billboard Hot 100 as a lead artist. Scott has gone as high as No. 43 with "A Long Walk" in 2001 -- one of just three singles she's notched on the list. As for Bon Iver, the act has yet to claim a Hot 100 hit as a lead -- though it has tagged along as a featured guest on two Kanye West tracks: "Monster" (No. 18) and "Dark Fantasy" (No. 60).

    Of course, Scott's format home is R&B, so it's no surprise that she's racked up 14 singles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Her best showing so far is "Walk," which hit No. 9. However, her new single, "So in Love," reached No. 10 and an ascent back up the list isn't out of the question. (It dips 10-13 this week.) Meanwhile, on the Hot 100, "Love" debuts at No. 97, marking Scott's return to the list for the first time since 2001's "The Way" spent 20 weeks on the tally. Scott joins Susan Boyle (2009-10), India.Arie (2006) and Judy Garland (1961) as the only women to top the Billboard 200 without ever having banked a top 40 Hot 100 hit.

    For Bon Iver, its radio chart history is more spotty: The act hasn't notched a single radio hit any format ranked by Billboard.

    As the top of the Billboard 200 has proved in recent years -- and this week again -- a top-selling album doesn't necessarily require a hit Hot 100 single.

    Of the 83 top 10 debuts on the Billboard 200 this calendar year (starting with the Jan. 29-dated chart, as we post-date our tallies), 75 were albums by an artist (not a soundtrack or various artists compilation). Of those artist-albums, 36 (48%) were by acts who had earned a top 40 Hot 100 hit (as a lead act), while 39 (52%) had not.

    More impressive, depending on how you look at it, is that among that group of 39, 18 of them (46% of the 39) hadn't had a Hot 100 hit at all.

    That latter hitless group includes No. 1-debuting acts the Decemberists and Amos Lee, along with Social Distortion, Hollywood Undead, Asking Alexandra, Il Volo, Jackie Evancho and Ledisi. What those 39 acts have in common -- aside from a lack of Hot 100 hits -- is that they're all non-mainstream (read: pop) acts, and all of them have a strong following with a core demographic.

    The vast majority are rock acts that never crossed over to pop, but still have a solid fan base. And for most of the rest that aren't rockers (like Il Volo or Evancho), their still-young careers were built through TV and word-of-mouth, not a hit single.

    At this point last year, things weren't much different.

    There were 71 artist-album debuts between Jan. 16 and July 10, 2010, and of those, 41 (58%) were by acts that had placed a single in the top 40 of the Hot 100, while 30 (42%) had not. And, of the 30, 18 (60%) were lacking a Hot 100 hit entirely. (The no-hitters included, at that point: Vampire Weekend, Spoon, Broken Bells, Bullet for My Valentine, the National and LCD Soundsystem.)

    However, if we scroll back five years to 2006, the story changes a bit.

    On the Billboard 200 dated Jan. 21 through July 8, 2006, there were 65 artist albums that bowed in the top 10. Of those, a handsome 41 (63%) were by acts with a Hot 100 top 40 hit, while just 24 (37%) lacked one. And, of the 24, only nine (38%) had never scored a Hot 100 single. (Among them, Il Divo, Ben Harper, Atreyu and Underoath.)

    So, just five years ago, of the top 10-debuting acts on the Billboard 200, a full 63% of them had at least one top 40 Hot 100 hit single. This year, that share has shrunk all the way down to just 48%.

    So what's going on?

    Well, first, it's easier to get a big debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart in 2011 than it has ever been -- especially for quirky under-the-radar acts. Why is that? As album sales have fallen off a cliff over the past decade -- and as more focus has been placed on first-week sales -- those acts with a core, dedicated fan base can propel an unlikely act straight into the top 10.

    Truly, did anyone expect Cake or Amos Lee to debut at No. 1 this year after never having had a top 10 album before? Likely not. Yet, there they were -- bowing at No. 1 in January with their latest albums.

    But it's not just a core fan base and soft album sales that are helping the weird hitless-top-10-album debuters -- it's also how albums can't sustain any sales momentum past their first week. Albums fall off the Billboard 200 must faster now, despite high debuts -- therefore leaving room at the top of the list for new entries.

    We're seeing more and more unlikely acts chart -- and at even higher rank -- but at the same time, they fall mighty fast, too. Again, it's because they have a core fan base that turns out to buy an album in its first week -- generating a high chart rank -- yet, after that, there is no one left to purchase the set and it tumbles down the list.

    One can not also discount the effect the digital age has had on the increase in non-hit acts reaching the upper tier of the Billboard 200 over the past five years. A non-superstar pop artist enjoying a radio hit will probably be sampled by today's digital-savvy consumer on a track level or via a free streaming service before one would plunk down some cash on a full-length album. Conversely, those acts garnering attention outside the radio sphere are building or already have a following based on something more than a radio hit, making their albums a more appealing purchase than any one track from the set.

    Nothing seems to indicate that we're going to suddenly see a shift in how the charts are behaving at this point. Who knows what kind of disparate acts will be showcased on the Billboard 200 versus the Hot 100 in a year -- or five years.

    Re: Bon Iver

    Right behind Jill Scott at No. 2 this week is folk rock act Bon Iver, who sees its self-titled second full-length album take a bow with 104,000. This marks both its highest-charting set and best sales week yet. Fronted by singer/songwriter Justin Vernon, the Bon Iver's previous high-water mark came when its "Blood Bank" EP debuted and peaked at No. 16 with 23,000 in 2009.

    Mayor proclaims 'Bon Iver Day' in Milwaukee

    July 22 may be Friday, but it's also "Bon Iver Day" in Milwaukee.

    Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has proclaimed Friday "Bon Iver Day" in recognition of Justin Vernon/Bon Iver's Wisconsin and Milwaukee ties.

    Sadly for fans, Bon Iver performances on Friday and Saturday at the Riverside Theater are both sold out.

    Since Mayor Tom Barrett proclaimed today Bon Iver Day, why not celebrate it by downloading a free and legal Bon Iver mp3?

    Music blog Largehearted Boy, which offers 10 free and legal mp3 downloads daily, is pointing to a free download of Bon Iver's "Holocene" today.

    Re: Bon Iver

    Last Wednesday, James Blake posted the following message to his Twitter: "24th August 2011 - James Blake & Bon Iver 'Fall Creek Boys Choir'". It is now August 24, and BBC Radio 1 has premiered the track. Listen to it below:

    According to a press release, "Over the past year James has cited Justin as a key influence and it was via a chance meeting at this years SXSW festival in Austin, Texas that the seed was sown for a future collaboration." The track was "formed in the spring over email." It features Justin Vernon on vocals and James Blake on production. It will be available on iTunes on August 29.

    At the bottom of the Youtube page for the song, it says, "Enough Thunder - Oct 2011". "Enough Thunder" is the name of a new track Blake has been performing live recently. No other info is available now.

    Bon Iver On World Cafe

    It's a stretch to call "Beth/Rest" the year's most divisive song, but it's hard to discuss Bon Iver's second album without weighing in on its '80s-style closer. Next to the lush, impeccably crafted grace that precedes it, "Beth/Rest" couldn't be more jarring: With its electric keyboards, saxophones and epic guitar solos, the track could double as the lost love theme to a misbegotten action movie in which Morgan Fairchild seduces a suave diamond thief played by Lou Diamond Phillips.

    In circles where such matters are discussed, "Beth/Rest" has become synonymous with "cheesy," defended primarily by contrarians. Which is too bad, because the song is a grower — at worst, there's clearly beauty in there somewhere. Singer Justin Vernon has defended "Beth/Rest" endlessly, and has clearly fallen more deeply in love with the arrangement the more people make fun of it, to the point where he always performs it with its moist embellishments intact.

    Until now. As part of a stripped-down set for World Cafe, Vernon threw in a spare solo arrangement of "Beth/Rest" — no saxophones, no solos — on a real, unplugged piano. Vernon still takes his vocal in unexpected places, especially early on, but if you're one of those "Beth/Rest"-haters who wishes the song would get stripped naked and dressed in something more comfortable, you'll want to listen to this. And, as part of a half-hour performance and discussion with host David Dye, Vernon plays two other Bon Iver songs: "Holocene," from the new album, and the lovely but lesser-known "Beach Baby," from 2009's Blood Bank EP.

    Bon Iver Release Deluxe Version of LP

    On November 29, Jagjaguwar will release a deluxe edition of Bon Iver's self titled second release. The album will come with track-by-track video accompaniments by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, Isaac Gale, David Jensen, JoLynn Garnes, Ryan Thompson, Andre Durand, and Dan Huiting . A press release notes that the videos are not necessarily "music videos", but rather provide atmospheric visuals.

    The release will be available via iTunes, with a limited edition DVD coming in early December, available for free with purchase of the album at select shops and through Jagjaguwar's mailorder.

    Watch the trailer below:

    Details on the Bon Iver Workout DVD

    According to MTV Hive, the video posted earlier this week of Bon Iver's Justin Vernon working out with a personal trainer is not only real, but it's part of a forthcoming workout DVD.
    Directed by Dan Huiting, who directed Bon Iver's "Calgary" video (and works on the Pitchfork.tv show "City of Music"), the DVD will include workout routines set to music from Bon Iver, Megafaun, and more.

    "You can work out to cool music instead of something stupid," Huiting told MTV Hive. "If you're an indie rock kid and you put that music on while you're running on the treadmill, this is an actual circuit... It's in Justin's yard, where he grew up, and it's them doing these three circuit exercises". Because nothing screams FITNESS quite like Bon Iver's music.

    Huiting also says he's working on a feature-length documentary about Bon Iver.

    Re: Bon Iver

    4AD and Jagjaguwar have collaborated on a live session that captures a truly unique Bon Iver performance, featuring Justin Vernon and Sean Carey. On recent tours fans will have become accustomed to seeing Vernon flanked by an eleven-piece band, with the swell in numbers lending a grandiose element to even his most delicate songs. Sidestepping expectations, the idea Vernon presented for this session was to provide a wildly different experience.

    Recorded in AIR Studio's Lyndurst Hall - a building that was originally a church and missionary school designed in 1880 by the great Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse (designer of the Natural History Museum) - Vernon was joined only by Carey, with the pair positioning themselves opposite one another at two grand pianos. Although neither Justin nor Sean's first instrument is piano, they were able to remodel the songs in a way that showcases their complimentary vocals and, perhaps more strikingly, a seemingly effortless ability to experiment with form and structure.

    As such, fans are treated to jaw-dropping interpretations of several songs from both the new album and the 'Blood Bank' EP, as well as a cover of Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me". And interpretation is an apt word, as these songs are artfully abstracted from their original incarnations. Rather than layer the sound as on 'Bon Iver, Bon Iver', the focus is on paring back, in part evoking the minimalist approach of contemporary classical music, while remaining true enough to the source material to retain those elements characteristic of Bon Iver.

    As on "Babys" and "Hinnom, TX", Vernon's trademark falsetto is positioned centre stage, framed by subtle and unexpected instrumental flourishes that render the performance simultaneously weighty and airless. It's quite an achievement that songs so widely-known and loved in their recorded form are able gain in emotional impact, and stands as testament to Bon Iver's singular talent.
