#18. Bon Iver, Bon Iver
Released: June 28 (Click Here To Buy It Now On MP3)
Complex says: Bon Iver was catapulted into the national spotlight last year after an invitation to work with Kanye West on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. But many first came upon him with his 2007 album, For Emma, Forever Ago, which saw Iver fold himself into the recesses of a cabin in his native Wisconsin, where he made an album that sounded like the setting of a winter sunset. This self-titled second effort is not as free flowing and painful, but just as beautiful. Mood music to the fullest. If you ever need to soundtrack for a weekend in nature, or zone out and pretend like you're having one, this is it.
