Recording For Emma, Forever Ago in a cabin in Wisconsin in 2007, Justin Vernon had no idea what a shot in the arm he was about to give American folk. But with Bon Iver, less a band than a stylistic quest, this Neil Young fan forged captivating futures for the genre. Sought after by James Blake and Kanye West and regularly creating seasonal projects (Volcano Choir, etc.), Vernon secretly assembled acclaimed records (22, A Million, 2016) steeped in electronic sounds and dusty ruins. This will be Montreux’s first taste of an intense body of work that blends crazy rusticity and pop subtlety, sumptuous experimentation and tormented collage, human emotion and chaos born of modernity.
