Bon Hiver - Calgary
Our apologies. We've been remiss this week in posting our usual "New Music Tuesday" post, and we've received no shortage of reminders to get on top of it. This week, Bon Hiver released their new self titled album, and for those of you that loved their critically acclaimed debut album "For Emma, Forever Ago" will not be disappointed. The production quality has gone up a bit, but that's understandable considering their success, and that unlike their last album, opted not to record in a cabin in the Wisconsin woods. Here, we give you both a beautiful song put to beautiful images, which also displays the frontman Justin Vernon's affinty for all things Canadian. He's been quoted as saying "most nights I stay up late, get drunk and wrap myself in the Canadian flag." As usual, available on iTunes.
