Thanks to NPR, we’ve got two great albums this week! First up is one of the most highly-anticipated releases of the year: Bon Iver’s Bon Iver. It’s certainly a change in tone from 2008’s For Emma, Forever Ago, featuring a more complicated, textured set of musical arrangements. I’ve been looking forward to this all year, and I encourage you to join me in visiting NPR to hear Bon Iver.
Also, this week, we get to hear another eponymous album: Marissa Nadler’s kickstarter-funder Marissa Nadler. Marissa is definitely one of the most exciting artists to come out of Boston in a while – drawing comparisons to Pink Floyd, Leonard Cohen, and Kate Bush (how’s that for a mix?) – I encourage you to have a listen here.
