Mere mornings ago, Pitchfork (read the small article on their site for more, as there’s also a link to the track) divulged that a previously unreleased B-side from Bon Iver was unearthed. Of course, it’s as quaint and gorgeous as many of the softer tracks from both albums, but it’s almost instantly better, simply through the fact that Justin Vernon hasn’t presented us with anything new lately.
Bon Iver specialise in the sentimental; hell, I was even welling up when Kanye brought Justin Vernon out during his Glastonbury set. ‘Haven, Mass’ is just another elegant tearjerker, and a sore reminder that we need some fresh material soon (please!).
