I'm currently in love with Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago. I decided to check it out after hearing musician Justin Vernon was originally from Wisconsin, went to UW-Eau Claire (!) and recorded the album in a hunting lodge. It's hushed, lo-fi guitar folk, similar to early Iron and Wine but with more . . . I don't know, soul? Basically, it's gorgeous. It's self-released, so you can only buy it at his myspace page, but you can also stream it here.
