Bon Iver is here in Madison, to play at the Barrymore.
My friend Julia has a final tonight at some crazy hour and so she can't see him.
I sent Justin an e-mail via MySpace, asking him if he'd stick around one more night and play at Julia's graduation party tomorrow night, at Cafe Montmartre.
That'd be one hell of a surprise performance.
And we'll just have to wait and see.
One Bon Iver song and several others, as I promised earlier today.
In case you hadn't noticed, by the way, all of the Bon Iver tracks I'm featuring in my FaveSongs series are from his MySpace Transmissions digiEP, which is available free right here.
The EP is comprised of four tracks from his wonderalbum For Emma, Forever Ago, which technically came out [at the very end of] last year. These MST versions are a bit tweaked and refreshing, though, and legit for this 2008 list.
I'm at work. Or at least I should be. But I've had "best of" lists on the mind lately, and I've had these types of posts on the agenda for days, weeks even.
But since I have final exams beginning Tuesday and not ending til Saturday, these will be quick and concise lists. Enough cheering out there.
Check back in the coming days as I'm trying to post 10-15 of my favorite songs of 2008 each day until.... well, until I run out. But that may be a while because I already have over 100 lined up. To make it easy for you, which is always my goal, bookmark this link.
And the only song that receives any ranking here is my bar-none Favorite. Song. Of. The. Year. Period.
It's not even midnight here at my Thanksgiving weekend getaway, but everyone else is in bed [in their defense, everyone else is either under six or over fifty-six years]. And so I'm tired. And bored. I haven't been able to make myself catch up with blogwork or schoolwork, until now. But even now I gotta admit to you guys I'm not totally into it.
I am, however, totally into these guys. All the bands tonight are from Down Under, and all have been getting a lot of rotation in my iPod and iTunes lately. Get all tonight's tunes in a zip, linked at the bottom.
