“Blindsided,” by Bon Iver (MUM Day 9)

How did I get so many days behind? Oh right — I had to process 150 chickens last weekend.

“Blindsided,” by Bon Iver, from For Emma, Forever Ago, 2007.

I begged this album off Katie after I became obsessed with the Fleet Foxes and started hearing a lot of people comparing the two. I don’t like Bon Iver as much, though, and I think it’s because the vocals appear to be one person on multiple tracks. I don’t know if Fleet Foxes is one person or multiple people, but it doesn’t sound as much like multiple tracks … I tend to like the technology to be invisible.

But, the song is pleasant all the same; I’ll keep it.

Current play count: 4.
