Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) "Hazelton"


Before Justin Vernon was Bon Iver, all-around musical sensation with over sixteen and a half million plays on Last.fm, he was a stay-at-home musical genius and recorded and released Hazeltons in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Vernon made 100 copies of this record back in Raleigh in long paper sleeves with various nature photos and sold them at a local record store, or so I read somewhere online.

For many Justin Vernon/Bon Iver fans, like myself, this will be your very first taste of "Hazelton", the gorgeous first listen of many. Listen to and download Hazeltons' titular track-mp3 here:
