Bon Iver pops up numerous times on Kanye West's new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and I, for one, am loving it. It seems totally unexpected and yet makes so much sense at the same time. Love him or leave him, Kanye once again demonstrates his willingness to find inspiration from many different music sources. Plus, Bon Iver is fucking awesome. Listening to his album For Emma, Forever Ago is like opening a gift on Christmas morning over and over again. Having almost an ethereal quality, it gives you everything you are looking for in that type of album. The type of album you listen to when you are feeling mopey and need a reminder that feelings are universal and you aren't the only one on the face of the earth that has felt bad. It actually makes be feel better because it makes me feel less special.
Chin chin to KW for bringing us a little morsel of Bon Iver.
