Bon Iver: Blood Bank

Off the strength of last year's For Emma, Forever Ago, indie folkster, Bon Iver (a.k.a. Justin Vernon) is releasing an EP later this month entitled, Blood Bank. Its first single, a self-titled and mellowed bit of romantic narrative, (What's a little love between donors? Free juice and doughnuts equals cheap date and the possibility of STDs can be determined onsite. It's actually a brilliant concept), begins simply enough and then grows like an impassioned sound farm. An odd story, but an interesting alternative to the very clichéd "walk in the park."
