    There's a lot of sweet action in the albums of the week, with releases from Indie Rock innovators, soulful singer-songwriters, and solid hip hop talent.

    Bon Iver's Justin Vernon has been stirring a fuss ahead of his third album release, sharing his opinion of artists who take big sponsorship deals, or who court fame. Calling out Beyoncé, in particular, led to Fleet Foxes Robin Pecknold to recall Vernon's own foray into sponsorship deals, and his whiskey promo-days - it was a strange and colorful non-spat-spat. Vernon, who has been as involved in collaborations as he has been focusing on his own solo projects, working with James Blake, Kanye, and covering Peter Gabriel, has produced yet another disarmingly beautiful collection of tracks. New album 22, A Million blends fonts and feelings from song titles and continues the disorientating emotional landscape. For fans of Vernon this may well prove to be a cornerstone in their relationship with one of this generation's most innovative songwriters. For newcomers this is a collection of songs populated by the kind of craft that easily shows the magical sense of timeliness and space that Bon Iver captures better than almost anyone, distinctly showing what the fuss is always about.
