Slow Down at Meatski's

Meatski's in Pound, WI

Bon Iver The Woods (mp3) [Eau Claire, WI]: Justin sings about going up in the woods because he knows. He knows that towns of 355 people, 149 households, and 89 families sound different. He knows the fun of stopping at a gas station and being greeted by an albino deer on display in a glass case. And that Sierra Mist tastes better when stuffed squirrels are lined across the top of the Pepsi cooler. He knows that his voice can carry for miles over the graceful hills up here. He knows about time slowing down.

Side note: I hung out with a bunch of folks from Eau Claire on Friday who hadn't heard of Bon Iver... I don't know how that is possible. Also, there was apparently a noisecore band in the 1990s called Pound WI.
