Skinny Love - Bon Iver (2007)
In the wake of the Nick Drake post, let us follow it up with his spiritual son. Justin Vernon recorded his debut album in an isolated cabin, and that vibe picks up on For Emma, Forever Ago like feedback on the tracks. "Skinny Love" is masterful in its loneliness and in its firm belief in this transforming emotion even in the face of despair. No wonder Kanye likes him so much. This is 808 And Heartbreak unplugged in the woods.
Time magazine said the Ukulele is coming back......this is why!
