The Bon Iver album For Emma, Forever Ago changed the way in which I listen to music: its simplicity, raw ambience, its honest eeriness, and the unexpected sound of Justin Vernon scratching his beard, make it an album I consider life-changing. Bon Iver, Bon Iver is a glorious progression on the minimalism of the previous record, but for those who adored the intimacy of For Emma, this live video of Justin Vernon, S Carey and two pianos in a London studio provide the songs of the new with the feeling of the old.
