I wear my garment so it shows, now you know.

Bon Iver

Am I the only person who just found out that Bon Iver is not a person, but a band? I guess it would make sense now why whenever I'd say, "Oh I love Bon Iver, he's so good!" people would respond with puzzled looks, back away slowly, and then run screaming into the woods.

Anyway, Bon Iver is only a little pup of a band, having formed in 2007 by indie folk singer Justin Vernon (the face and voice of Bon Iver). The other lesser known band members include, Michael Noyce (vocals, baritone guitar, guitar), Sean Carey (drums, vocals, piano), and Matthew McCaughan (bass, drums, vocals). Vernon's credit is not undue either, as he independently released Bon Iver's first album "For Emma, Forever Ago," and had recorded most of the tracks sequestered in a remote cabin in Northwestern Wisconsin (um..). The ebb and flow of Iver's Lump Sum, Stacks, Flume, and Skinny Love may encourage a listener to stare into a puddle or sit in a rocking chair on a front porch in the woods of Northern Wisconsin, smoking a pipe and contemplating life. To name only a couple of the debut album accolades, "For Emma, Forever Ago" was released in the UK and gained immediate and significant acclaim. The album received 5/5 in album of the month in Uncut and Mojo Magazines and was rated seventh best album of the year on the review-aggregator site Metacritic. Bon Iver also recently collaborated with Kanye West on two of the tracks (Lost In The World and Monster) in Kanye's new (venerable) album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy." It looks to me as though Iver's career has only begun to gain momentum; we will hopefully be hearing and seeing a lot more of them in 2011.

Nice Iver "rerub" Thanks for helping me survive the workweek Raf


will be pumping this all weekend..

this video takes a minute to start. The Sun Recordings are fun to cook to and truly show you how amazing Elvis was, especially because of the fact that Elvis included all of his recording bloopers on the album.

Select Jazz. 26,000 views and not a single dislike. Thanks Andy
