Episode Summary

Bon Iver
Perching on a wall below the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, was where we found Justin, aka Bon Iver. Reams have been written on him and his album - apparently inspired by heartache after breaking from his girlfriend and band, and written in the Wilderness somewhere in darkest Wisconsin. An album and story with the name For Emma, Forever Ago - chapters recorded in songs that resist falling into that all too tempting trap of pain-inspired, self-indulgent cringe. The songs are instead delicate and intimate and haunting. And so, meeting this man, knowing his album and story, was something we were more nervous about than usual. But we neednt have worried, Justin was disarmingly down to earth and charming. And his session, as we drove around Buckingham Palace in the sunlight, along the Strand and back to Trafalgar Square, made London, briefly, sound as beautiful as it looked.moreless
