Sam Fitzpatrick Reader Find

By Sam Fitzpatrick in New Music on Friday 23 March 2012

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.
