Kathleen Edwards – “Wapusk” (Feat. Bon Iver)

kathleen edwards Top 10 mp3s of the Week (9/7)

I’ve been sitting in a newly repainted room for the past couple hours, and the paint fumes may or may not be having a direct effect on why I’m so into this mp3 at this particular moment. But even before the fumes set in, I knew this was a track I’d be including. Full transparency: I only listened to this track because it said Bon Iver on it, and now I’m totally ashamed. I should have been a little more focused on Kathleen Edwards, who will take your heart and crush it to pieces, only to put it all back together again, leaving you one very happy individual. Reportedly, Edwards recorded this in Vernon’s studio on his nylon-stringed guitar, and just like that the song was born. To clarify, Vernon does appear on the track, providing some backing vocals, but he acted mostly as a producer. At any rate, check it out. You’ll be glad you did. –WR
