Bon Iver new EP Blood Bank available for stream

Bon Iver is building off their recent hit "For Emma, Forever Ago," but don't look for the same feel in their upcoming 4 song EP "Blood Bank." Jagjaguwar records, who put out Emma and will release "Blood Bank" on January 20 claims, "As much as Emma is about the cold, the Blood Bank collection is about the warmth that gets you through it. You can feel the air move. Like a fire you've been stoking for hours and finally got to sustain itself, the heat blisters your face while your back is frozen solid." So essentially "Blood" builds off the loss that "Emma" left us feeling. With the same great sound, but a new outlook on the world, I for one am thankful that Bon Iver was so quick in getting me out of the cold. Listen to the new EP at Bon Iver's myspace page. Was the final song "Woods" produced by Kanye? I will let you decide....
