New Bon Iver!

Seriously, the internet music community and bloggers can't get enough of this guy, or say enough good things. From his first album, For Emma, Forever Ago, he's been at the top of my playlist, with the best music that I've heard all year. What makes me happy? New songs from him. Here's a very new song, Blood Bank, which rocks, and a couple of covers and an untitled new one from a concert back in May. I'm not totally sold on the covers - they're decent, but the real gems here are his two new tracks. They've got a fantastic groove, and hopefully this means that he'll be working on a followup album soon:

Blood Bank (Live) - Bon Iver
Untitled New Song (Live) - Bon Iver
Every Grain of Sand (Bob Dylan) - Bon Iver
Sabu Visits the Twin Cities Alone (John Prine) - Bon Iver
