Truth Comes In Covers: Bon Iver

Here is Bon Iver covering the incomparable, the one, the only, Leslie Feist. Do you want to know how to write a sad love song? Look no further. In fact you may realize that the sad love song thing has been gutted, emptied, and done better than you could ever hope.

"Sadness so real that it populates the city, and leaves you homeless again. Steam from a cup and snow on the path. The seasons have changed from present to past. The past turns whole to half."

oooh, i love this song. i love the lines, "why would he come back through the park? you thought that you saw him, but no you did not. it's not him who'd come cross the sea to surprise you, not him who would know where in london to find you."
man, that's good stuff.
thanks for the download! justin vernon does such a good job on this cover.
