Depicting a dead tree perceived from the inside of secluded room, and with a mysterious form shrouding our view, the complexity of the image that adorns this magnificent record offers an interesting lens through which we can begin to understand FEFA a little closer. Album covers are an integral ingredient to our experiencing of an album. As such, album covers are like a shortcut, summing up everything an album represents in a few thousand pixels. They complete the package of an album by forming a visual link between the audio and our comprehension of it, so whenever someone mentions FEFA , my mind immediately jumps to its haunting cover art before it begins to think of any of the songs. No wonder Daniel Murphy, who designed the Jagjaguwar artwork for FEFA confessed he went through about different ideas before the final product was chosen; a special piece of music requires an equally as special front cover.
Recorded in a cold, isolated cabin in Wisconsin, this debut by Justin Vernon's Bon Iver is rich in wintry intimacy and frosty atmospherics, charting the solitary sounds of a writer in quiet self-reflection.

The majority of that album was recorded while Vernon spent three months isolated in a cabin in northwestern Wisconsin. After the breakup of his band DeYarmond Edison , the ending of a relationship, and a bout with mononucleosis hepatitis ,  Vernon left Raleigh , North Carolina, and moved back to Wisconsin. He spent the oncoming winter months at his father's cabin in Dunn County, Wisconsin. According to Vernon, it was during this time that the "Bon Iver" moniker first entered his mind; while bedridden with mononucleosis, he began watching the s TV series Northern Exposure on DVD. This was initially transcribed by Vernon as "boniverre"; however, when he learned of its proper French spelling, he elected not to use it, deciding " hiver " reminded him too much of liver , the site of his illness at the time.

Bon Iver just released his album…..

S hould Channel 4 survivalist 'Bear' Grylls ever tire of killing snakes with his own bare hands, a ready-made replacement may be waiting in the wings. Nu folk's Bon Iver, aka Justin Vernon, recorded For Emma, Forever Ago in an isolated cabin in Wisconsin, where he existed on a diet of deer he'd slaughtered and water and leftovers delivered by his dad. Accordingly, his debut prompts few comparisons, as if Vernon's three-month stint in self-imposed exile wasn't just an exercise in survivalism but an attempt to underscore the distance dividing Bon Iver from his contemporaries. Certainly, For Emma, though only nine tracks long, is as beautiful, bleak and intimate as anything is likely to throw up. Emma, presumably, is Vernon's erstwhile love, but this is an album that is shrouded in mystique, from the foggy cover photo of a forest to the titles that are chilling and opaque 'Creature Fear', 're:stacks'.
