Good Winter

Current best song in the world:  Bon Iver – Skinny Love (Acoustic).

Bon Iver is about the coolest band in the world.  This guy’s band breaks up, and his girlfriend leaves him, so he decides to retreat to his father’s small cabin in the wilderness of Wisconsin.  Somewhere cold.  He spends three months more or less by himself in the winter.  He starts to record songs he thinks of, and eventually comes up with lyrics by playing the songs over and over again to hear what’s missing.  It becomes his “Good Winter” and he names the album “For Emma, Forever Ago.”

There’s a brilliance in isolation.
