Persistently memorable like the scrunch of delicate autumn leaves underfoot, i,i sees Vernon explore the individual versus the communal, while his voice remains a vibrating wire to the heart. Firefly violins dart through the pages of this watercolour flipbook, where gentle nests of static cradle vocal warps, banjo, and bright harmonies. Another homerun for one of music’s most inventive visionaries.
i,i by Bon Iver is out on vinyl and CD on August 30 via Jagjaguwar.
