Bon Iver’s “Beth/Rest,” Hold The Cheese

In our Premature Evaluation of Bon Iver’s self-titled second LP, we wrote that album closer “Beth/Rest” recalled Steve Winwood and Bruce Hornsby, and definitely pushed the “cheese” factor furthest. The track was, to say the least, something of a curveball. However, Bon Iver recently took to NPR to do a solo piano version, siphoning out the schmaltz, and it’s pretty great.
