If you know anything about me, besides that my name is Rachel, it’s probably that I have a heavy, heavy appreciation for anything Justin Vernon does, and you know, just him in general. It also may be that I change my favorite song weekly. Or just about.
And I use the word “appreciation” to describe what I feel because “obsession” sounds creepy. Heh.
But in all seriousness, before sounding like an ecstatic little fan girl (which in reality is probably what I consider myself) I am fully appreciative of his passion for music and for the remarkable ways he chooses to make it.
It was by an extremely happy accident that I got to meet him and talk with him for a solid 5-10 minutes before dancing around a field with my old roomie, Aubry.
It was also a happy accident that I’ve seen him perform live twice–once with GAYNGS and once with Bon Iver.
And another happy accident that lead him to start following me on the tweeter. It’s not too big of a deal that he RTs me and tells me which albums to listen to when I’m having a rough day (except I still think it’s a big deal and I freak out any time we communicate).
So many beautiful, happy, serendipitous moments in my life. *sigh*
But let’s add one more to the list…I stumbled upon this song on Spotify a week or two ago.
Go ahead, listen to it, I say!
But this isn’t an official video or anything, so prance around your house while you listen to it.
Because it’s not exciting to watch.
But it’s exciting to listen to.
The first time I listened to this, I didn’t know what song I was listening to because it came on shuffle on Spotify. And I was like “Oh, I don’t know if I like her voice.” But I continued to listen and then Justin’s voice came in and I immediately liked the song more. Anais’ voice is certainly growing on me quickly. It’s quirky and different.
And both of them together…Oh goodness.

I hope you enjoyed the song. If you didn’t, well, I guess that’s okay.
But you probably should try to be my friend anymore.
Oh, and I am officially on SPRING BREAK.
I can almost taste summer.
Confession time: I bought the song this morning on my phone–this was about an hour and a half ago. It’s all I’ve listened to today. And at 3 minutes and 18 seconds, that calculates to a nonstop 3o timesish. Whoa.
