Justin Vernon and The National

Last night, Bon Iver and the National were both guests on Q, a show on the Canadian network CBC Radio. They came together in a live session, with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon singing backup on the National’s High Violet track “Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks.” Vernon’s backing falsetto sounds pretty great alongside Matt Berninger’s baritone, but Vernon’s going to have to start dressing a little nicer if he’s going to hang with those dudes.

Below, check out video of Vernon with the National, as well as a video of Vernon’s interview on the station, which, as you’d imagine, features lots of Grammy and Kanye talk.

This radio show actually seems pretty badass. It’s really not fair that Canada gets socialized health care and this.

  6. re: Interview – Since I Left You is Pitchfork’s 10th best album of the 2000′s, how can Justin Vernon not have heard of The Avalanches?
