Watch Bon Iver Play Austin City Limits

Previewed a little while back, Bon Iver’s episode of Austin City Limits aired over the weekend and has now hit the web for your viewing/embedding pleasure. Unfortunately, the broadcast never breaks away to an infomercial for Bon Iver’s Workout Plan, which is a shame because that’s totally picking up steam. Watch it below. More »

Justin Vernon: Bon Iver Is “Winding Down”

It feels like Bon Iver has been a part of the indie rock firmament for years now, but when you look back on it, their output has been tiny: Two albums, one EP. And as it turns out, that may be all we get. In a recent interview with the Minnesota public radio station 89.3… More »

Now You, Too, Can Remix Bon Iver, Bon Iver

Great album though it may be, Bon Iver’s Bon Iver, Bon Iver doesn’t exactly resonate as prime remix raw material at first glance. But that album is so layered-up, so packed with complementary strains of beauty, that a great remix of one of these songs could be a transcendent thing. And now the normal people… More »

Download Oddisee’s Odd Renditions EP (Feat. Bon Iver, Marvin Gaye & More) (Stereogum Premiere)

One of last year’s great unheralded treasures was Rock Creek Park, a gorgeously lush mostly-instrumental rap album from the Washington, D.C. rapper/producer Oddisee.

Kanye collaborated with filmmaker Ruth Hogben to make the clip for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’s “Lost In The World,” a black-and-white visual reliant on simple, but effective, imagery.

The second season of The Voice, NBC’s shockingly successful answer to American Idol, is coming to a close.
