///this is what happens when justin vernon and bon iver drummer sean carey are put in a hushed room with two grand pianos. pure beauty. chances are you've heard most of the tracks featured in this very special recording. but you haven't heard them quite like this. if you do only one thing: skip to minute nine for a cover of bonnie raitt's "i can't make you love me". it shines.///

"Enough has been made out of the cool side of the pillow. Enough with it. It's just an unused side, nothing more and nothing less. A pillow with potential. It's just lying there, naked by the headboard. Plenty has been made about the empty warmth of the bed too. The side of the bed, previously occupied, just recently deserted for a different bed. It's never meant a better bed, necessarily, just a different one, one with different sheets and blankets, different pillows for sure and without question, a different person to share it with. Plenty has been made out of how that warm, oblong shape of space that we can run our hands over and get burnt by the touch is like an obscenity to behold, to have to behold. There's no way around it. It's not the same as the warm spot that gets left in the mornings, when the alarm clocks beckon our better half away to an appointment or a job. This is the permanent kind of heat loss. It's there and then it's gone like a vapor, the scent of those limp, resting limbs and necks still reeks like betrayal and love, more love, no - more betrayal."  >>---> WORDS BY SEAN MOELLER
