cut out all the ropes and let me fall

#93.6 BON IVER – Skinny Love
Uploaded by lablogotheque

Absolutely jawdropping. This made the back of my scalp feel hot and tingly when I watched it, and the breakdown at the end always stabs me full in the gut.

The whole Blogotheque/Take Away Shows session with Bon Iver is definitely worth some of your time today. Bon Iver plays Outside Lands in August.

  • Oh lordy! I have watched this Skinny Love video well over 5 times on blogoteque the past few days. It’s right up there with the Arcade Fire in the elevator and Beirut’s street performances.

  • I think it is an amazing song but I am not entirely sold on Mr. Iver yet.

  • Great video, but I do not know if it can top sufjan stevens playing on the roof with the wind blowing fiercely in the background.

  • I love this man! We can’t stop raving about him at You Crazy Dreamers. I met him when he was in LA, just a nice guy.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
