Album review: i,i by Bon Iver
As we make the transition from hot summer days to cool autumn nights, consider having Bon Iver’s fourth studio album, i,i, your background music. Listen to it as you watch the leaves turn from their vibrant green to varying shades of yellow and orange.
What I enjoy most about Bon Iver’s music is that it’s not too alternative to scare you away, but it’s also enough to not bore you. In his fourth full-length studio album, singer-songwriter Justin Vernon challenges listeners’ sense of hearing by turning regular daily noises such as static and the sound of changing a radio station into auditory bliss.
i,i is a collection of tracks written and produced at separate times in different places, I would even say that most of it is improvised but that’s what makes it an experience worth listening.
