The hard sell

Fretting over how to pronounce the, er, "unbelievably crazy" song titles on the forthcoming Bon Iver album 22, A Million? Don't fear - Justin Vernon has helpfully explained them, in the course of a press conference to debut the LP. After a full playback of the record, journalists were treated to an hour and 40 minutes of Vernon gushing about its "bombastic and exciting" nature, claiming to have invented a new instrument, dropping names and noting that Stevie Nicks (of whom a sample is used) wanted nothing to do with the album. I strongly suspect she had the right idea.
