BON IVER Releases MP3 For Blood Bank EP

Jagjaguwar is proud to release the first high quality MP3 (nice try with all those crappy vinyl rips!) from the much anticipated BON IVER “Blood Bank” EP.

Leave it to BON IVER to make blood donation sound sexy. Have we ever found love at a blood bank? No. Have we ever made out in a car after donating blood? No. This song certainly brings us there, though, munching on cookies and drinking juice boxes in order to keep from fainting in that snowy parking lot. Red and white. Blood and snow.

Pitchfork was one of the firsts to weigh in on the title song:
“You can feel him stretching a bit, playing around with different ways to tell stories in his songs. ‘Blood Bank’ doesn’t really have a proper chorus– a leap up to a weary high note is as close at it gets– and there’s no bridge, either. Instead, it’s just a steady funeral march trailing behind one repeating chord progression, a lean and stark structure to match the song’s blown-out world.”

The EP will be released in digital, cd and vinyl formats on January 20th (19th in the UK) by Jagjaguwar, worldwide. No promotional copies will be available until that time.

Please enjoy the song “Blood Bank”
