When Justin Vernon appeared on Jimmy Fallon earlier this month he threw a curve ball called “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” the Bonnie Raitt (etc.) homage not all of you loved. A day after visiting Colbert he returned to Fallon with Colin Stetson & Co. — to celebrate topping our Top 20 Albums Of 2011 So Far list, obviously — and played it altogether straighter with one of Bon Iver’s standouts, “Holocene.” Weep openly:

  1. much better than “calgary” on colbert.

  2. Without the beard, wouldn’t he look a little like Andy Samburg?

  3. the guy playing guitar next to Justin looks really out of place….

  4. Surprised they let them play for 5 whole minutes.

  5. I love how awkward the people in the back always are.

  6. For a “stripped down” sound that’s a fuckload of people on stage.
