thanks again for the thread. I d/l the album today. Great post-ride chill music. :thumbsup:


// heh:
After the breakup of a band, a relationship, and bout with sickness (mononucleosis of the liver), Vernon left Raleigh and moved back to Wisconsin spending three months in his father's cabin in the woods of northern Wisconsin. According to Vernon, it was during this time that the "Bon Iver" moniker first entered his mind; while bedridden with mononucleosis, he began watching the television series Northern Exposure on DVD. One episode depicts a group of citizens in Alaska, where the show is set, emerging from their homes into the first snowfall of the winter and wishing one another a "bon hiver" (French for "good winter"). This was initially transcribed by Vernon as "boniverre"; however, when he learned of its proper French spelling, he elected not to use it, deciding "hiver" reminded him too much of "liver", the source of his illness at the time.

Yep. Bon Iver has been on regular rotation for a good bit now. He's actually been a bit hard to transition out of. Just too damned good.

Been bumping his stuff on the regular lately.

My fam has a cabin in the northwoods of Wisconsin. I think if I were to record an album I'd do the same thing.
