Justin Vernon began saving as Bon Iver following break up of DeYarmond Edison. Vernon’s single project had taken the band’s introspective, folky audio and embellished it with squinchy, quirky orchestral details that nodded to Sparklehorse and a drifty optimism similar to the Flaming Lip area. After composing and recording within a remote control cabin for 90 days, For Emma, Forever Ago premiered on Jagjaguwar in early 2008. As the entire year progressed, the record became very popular with both buying open public and critics, ultimately landing on several “Greatest of 2008” year-end lists. In 2011, Bon Iver came back using a self-titled record featuring more sophisticated creation; it topped the graphs in a number of countries all over the world.
