Label:Jagjaguwar
Key Track: "Blindsided"

Look, we have feelings, too, and we like driving around in a Volkswagen listening to acoustic feel-bad music as much as the next guy. But when we need true melancholy, we turn up the Bon Iver. This is the album we play while we're breaking up with chicks. Of course, once they're gone, we cue up the Queens of the Stone Age and call up some trifeys for a gymnastic threeway. Fuck feelings, anyway, amirite?

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
The name "Bon Iver" came to singer Justin Vernon while he was watching an episode of Northern Exposure.
