Bon Iver

For Emma, Forever Ago

12th May 2008

Every album is a product of time and place, but For Emma, Forever Ago more than most. Bon Iver (an intentional mis-spelling / adaptation of "Bon Hiver", French for "good winter") is the work of Justin Vernon, who spent three months alone in a log cabin in Northeast Wisconsin, living off the land, splitting wood, and hunting for food - a voluntary exile. And although this wasn't the archetypal spell in the wilderness that many artists seek out, a deliberate scheme to create a 'masterpiece', some very special music was born out of the experience. For Emma, Forever Ago is the unexpected, triumphant result.
