Bonne Musique

I've been listening to and enjoying Bon Iver (a Wisconsin native!). Yep, that's a bastardized version of 'good winter.' Apparently, questionable French language education is prevalent throughout the state. I spent four years of high school French spinning my wheels on conjugating passé composé, so I can relate to Mr. Bon Iver.

"For Emma, Forever Ago (2007)" was listed as #29 in Pitchforks Top 200 Albums of the 2000s. This list oozes pretentiousness and self-consciousness, but is still fun.

Wisconsin has become a hotbed of musical talent akin to Seattle in the 90s. I'm really really enjoying Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons right now.
