Song of the Day: "29 #Strafford APTS"

Justin Vernon, the Iver of Bon Iver (also the Bon of it), wisely let some time pass since the album full of songs that all sound like "Holocene" "Perth". And with 22, A Million he seems to be stretching the boundaries of songs that sound like "Perth".

Here he's playing the same stuff, with enough difference to still interest me (and to be clear, I dig this music, I really do--it's just that I recognize the sameness of it all... if I was shopping for Dockers I would need something a bit funkier to keep me looking).

There is a new annoyance, however: the album and song titles all start with numbers and seem to only be tangentially related to the song's contents (if even that). That's fine, because I will continue to call every song after For Emma... "Perth".

Song: "Perth" "29 #Strafford APTS"
Artist: Bon Iver
