Justin Vernon can do no wrong.
Check out his latest project- The Shouting Matches.
“It doesn’t even take 10 seconds for The Shouting Matches’ debut album, Grownass Man, to present itself as something lighter in spirit than anything by Bon Iver; even before the opening riffs, a mere glance at the cover shows a smiling Justin Vernon, hanging out with his hometown pals. This isn’t the stuff of mystery or misery, of yearning, of finding one’s voice in a secluded cabin. It’s the work of a guy who loves playing music — who’s drawn influence from Talk Talk and and many points in between — and saw an opportunity to have a blast on the side with friends he’s joined on stage whenever possible.” NPR: Stephen Thompson
