This Bon Iver cover of one of my favorite songs from childhood (picture me sitting by my boombox, cycling through cassette tapes)--Bonnie Rait's "I Can't Make You Love Me"-- has been looping on my iPod pretty much all weekend. His sound is so unique; deliciously strange and haunting. The kind of sound that makes you feel it in your gut.
The change in his voice around the 3:20 mark is my favorite moment. It immediately brought this quote to mind:
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."-Bob Marley
Listen all the way through if you can; he samples "Nick of Time" right at the end, too.
So beautiful. I freaking love music.
