Bon IverIt is hard to believe that it has been over three years since the first Bon Iver album came out. For Emma, Forever Ago was released by Jagjaguwar in February of 2008. This was just a month after I moved to Los Angeles. I will be the first to admit that I did not immediately fall in love with this album. It took a while. It just didn't hit me over the head and make me fall in love with it. I l know it had this effect on many of my friends. Maybe I just wasn't ready for it. Or I was trying to resist the cult of Bon Iver for some reason. But it slowly made its way into my heart. I never didn't like it. I just didn't love it. But it did grow on me over the year and the year following. I would find myself going back to it every once in a while. And I was strangely excited for the release of his new new album. It had been a while and I was ready for more Bon Iver. I also love that everybody has a different way that they say Bon Iver. Some people say boniver like it is one word. Others say Bon Iver like Bon Jovi. It is a bit confusing. It is based on the french phrase "Bon Hiver" which means "good winter." But I guess he didn't like the H and didn't want people to mispronounce it. But he should have spelled it "Bone E Ver" since that is really how it is pronounced. I instantly fell in love with the Bon Iver cover of "I Can't Make You Love Me/Nick of Time by Bonnie Raitt. You can find this track on the new 12" for the single Calgary. It was also on an EP that wasbon iver calgary given away with the album on release date. I never thought that Bonnie Raitt would make me fall in love with Bon Iver. But I think this is what really did it. You might first think that a Bon Iver cover of Bonnie Raitt would be amazing. But it is. I am hoping that Bonnie Raitt, who seems to be in some sort of semi retirement, also loves the cover. How can she not. Maybe this will pull her out of retirement. Maybe she will cover a Bon Iver song! Maybe she will appear with Bon Iver on SNL!
