Bon Iver - Calgary

Bon Iver's self-titled new album hits the USA on June 21st and he has just released the first single from the album 'Calgary'. You can head over to his website and pick up the track there. What you hear with Calgary is a very Pretty tune. Even at first listen it is hard to find any faults with the song, the only thing maybe that it is just too nice and pretty of a song. If the entire album can bring the same passion that 'Calgary' brings you might be putting this album right up there beside Justin Vernon's 2007 release of 'For Emma, Forever Ago'. Just another addition to the amazing year in music - 2011 could be musics big comeback tour.

Calgary's Lyrics:
don't you cherish me to sleep
never keep your eyelids clipped
hold me for the pops and clicks
I was only for the father's crib

hair, old, long along
your neck onto your shoulder blades
always keep that message taped
cross your breasts you won't erase
I was only for your very space

hip, under nothing
propped up by your other one, face 'way from the sun
just have to keep a dialogue
teach our bodies: haunt the cause
I was only trying to spell a loss

joy, it's all founded
pincher with the skin inside
you pinned me with your black sphere eyes
you know that all the rope's untied
I was only for to die beside

so itʼs storming on the lake
little waves our bodies break

there's a fire going out,
but there's really nothing to the south

swollen orange and light let through
your one piece swimmer stuck to you

sold, I'm Ever
open ears and open eyes
wake up to your starboard bride
who goes in and then stays inside
oh the demons come, they can subside
