Filling the gap between debut and follow up album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 14/10/2011 18:37:06
Anyway, this is a nice little filler between the two gaps, and smoothens out a transition from "accoustic/folk"("For Emma") to "synth/shoegaze/folk" ("Bon Iver - 2011") which otherwise might catch you off guard.
The tracks on this filler EP are in a similar vein to those on "For Emma" but some show hint at the interesting directions Vernon has gone on to explore in his most recent self titled album (2011). "Blood Bank" is "typical" Bon Iver, accoustic, rough sounding guitars, haunting melodies and beautiful thought provoking lyrics.
"Woods" is a lesson in how auto-tune can and should be used - the gradual build up of layers is an astonishing feat - similar in sound and concept to Imogen Heap's famous "Hide and Seek" - it might seem like sacrelige to those who only ever thought of Bon Iver as an "accoustic/folk" band. I imagine these people would also be a little suprised, and maybe even a little disappointed by his 2011 album release - but for me it's even better than the first (but that's another story....)
A bit expensive in terms of money per track, but for fans it's a must :) 5/5.

This extended play is utterly superb. Every song is a work of art. 'Woods' is a masterpiece.
