Bon Iver- "Skinny Love" our Song of the week

One of the best songs of the past year comes from Justin Vernon, aka Bon Iver and his song "Skinny Love". The story has been out there awhile now, but for anyone unfamiliar, Justin retreated to the woods of Wisconsin after the breakup of his band and split of a relationship, and in the end came away with the fantastic album For Emma, Forever Ago. It"s one of the most earnest and emotionally raw albums of recent memory.

Take a look at his performance of "Skinny Love" live on Jools Holland:
