Bros, THE BON! have just announced they're playing the prettiest theater in town this September. Tickets on sale this week. I also am going to pick the new album up during vinyl happy hour tonight. Justin Vernon is basically McCockne$$ing me right now.

My copy is sitting in a sorting facility in SLC. I should have it tonight unless they screw something up. Have only heard the lead single twice, so looking forward to hearing the rest.

I've got only vague recollections of the two NPR stream, so I'm somewhat in the same boat. Adrift on a salty lake.

Only now with the LP jacket in my hands do I realize just how Bob Ross-ian the cover truly is.

I like that they felt it worth mentioning that "no mellotrons were used in this recording."

Important info, indeed. I gave up attempting to read the lyrics out of the booklet, as that handwriting and my eyes do not get along well.

So Pitchfork gave this a 9.5, while PopMatters gave it a 6.

I really enjoyed about half of the debut, but I haven't listened to it in a while. I'll be curious to see if people like this one more or not.

The Colbert & Jimmy Fallon appearances were kick-ass.

Love the new stuff

"Holocene" is just... ugh, there are no words. Unbelievable.

Not as MUCH as For Emma, but that would be a lot of love to give.

I actually like it better than the first one. I find it more of a complete album, if that makes any sense. It's a beautiful listen all the way through.
