Daytrotter Sessions
a note about this track

"As a band, this take was one of our favorite musical moments out of our entire winter and spring tours. We connected well and created something very beautiful in the new arrangement we mustered up for this song. Mike plugged in two vintage amplifiers and messed with their tones and volumes. The frequency hum of the amps happened to be in the key of the song. All of the noise you hear in the beginning and end of the song and through out the mid-section is just the amps feeding back and their volumes being turned up and down. Sean played piano; his chords soaked up most of the song's foundation making it so that really the only audible sound from the guitar you could make out (during most of the song) was the clanking of my hand that the strumming pattern caused. I played bass drum again and guitar. The bass drum pedal was broken during the first part of the song, so I didn't play it. Mid-way through I fixed it and brought it into the first chorus, which caused a well taken accident ó rounded out the song's foundation. I added a bunch of organ noise at the end to add to the noise of the amps." ~Bon Iver
