About this deal

The work of Justin Vernon, who made the record whilst spending three months alone in a log cabin in Northeast Wisconsin; living off the land, splitting wood, and hunting for food. Vernon felt comfortable performing the album live, though it was very personal: "It's weird that I'm still behind these songs," he told PopMatters. He did not intend to stay for long, viewing the excursion as "an opportunity to escape the trap of society, to not pay bills, to play music and live really cheaply.

The label on side A had a dirt smudge or something, which I find hilarious because I bought is brand new and sealed 😆 the packaging is lackluster Tbf, but other than that, the vinyl is heavy and the sound is stunning. Over the course of his time in Raleigh, he became frustrated with his songwriting as well as his personal life.Carey, a jazz drummer from UW–Eau Claire, was a fan of the album, and had approached Vernon at one of his first performances. He later dubbed "Flume" as the "catalyst" for his move to the cabin and creation of Bon Iver: "that was the song that made me leave. He killed two deer in his period at the property, which lasted the entire three months "and then some," according to Vernon.

Bondi Records acknowledges the Bidjigal and Gadigal people, who traditionally occupied the Sydney Coast. Our album of the year 2008, 'For Emma, Forever Ago' was recorded during a three month stay in a log cabin somewhere in the woods of America. Many of his bands had held similar members—some he had known since his adolescence—which amplified the pain of breaking apart. By the start of the spring thaw he had recorded the bulk of this stunning debut, originally self-issued to acclaim last year in the USA and now picked up for a British release. Before heading back to Raleigh, he broke out some whisky with a couple friends and put the finishing touches on the record, recording brass on "For Emma.For the major touring cycle after the album's official release, he gathered together several musicians for the trek, including former guitar student Mike Noyce and drummer Sean Carey. The band toured with label-mates Black Mountain, which allowed the two groups to attract a "diverse crowd," according to Billboard. After three weeks, Vernon grew tired of his "self-indulgent, lazy behavior" and began forming song ideas.
