The Roots and Justin Vernon

?uestlove was throwing Twitter shots at Justin Vernon just a few months ago, but all that is long-buried. Last week, when he was in town for Saturday Night Live, the Bon Iver frontman stopped by the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon studios. As a special treat for the studio audience, he and the Roots played an astral, heavily Auto-Tuned eight-minute take on “Perth” that sounded perfectly lovely. And now, in their infinite wisdom, the people at Fallon have put that video online. Watch it below; it’s great.

Turns out our boy Justin has at least a touch of D’Angelo in him.

  1. I’m glad Justin and ?uestlove were able to settle their differences through the medium of slow jams.

  2. this one is definetly going on my “doing it” playlist.

  3. I was going to down vote this comment because you actually have a playlist for “doing it”. But I listened to the song and you know what…you right! Did you hear me Nicholas Brandt! You Right! So now I will make a playlist for doing it, but it will be called “Doin’ it”

  4. could we please get a justin vernon + the roots auto-tuned remix LP? this is fantastic

  5. Justin Vernon + James Blake LP needs to happen
