Bon Iver

Mike Monteiro:

Can someone who’s not on Paxil please explain Bon Iver to me.

I don’t think music should have to be explained. You either feel it or you don’t and not everybody has to like all the same stuff, especially when it’s as emotional as music.

And I understand the “I’m just an asshole on Twitter” thing, that’s all good. But I’m sure that feeling comes from a real place so I figured I’d take a stab at “explaining” why I like Bon Iver. Here’s how I feel about the songs:

Beyond that, Justin seems like a really nice and smart guy. AND he personally thanked characters from Northern Exposure in the liner notes of the first album which goes a long way with me. AND the second album is just as good as the first.
