Bon Iver for a Good Summer May 19, 2009

Posted by Patrick in Muzak.

Bon Iver, a band (although they’re not really a band considering it’s mostly just Justin Vernon…) that has been going since about 2007 caught my attention last September. I had hoped by now that I’d have seen them live, however so far there’s been nothing, in Dublin at least.

They have however announced one date, playing at the Festival Big Top in Galway on 23rd July. It’s a bit awkward but it might be worth the trip up to Galway…

Aside from their debut album “For Emma” (tracks from which have appeared in every television show from Grey’s Anatomy to Skins to United States of Tara) and EP “Blood Bank” (which even included some unexpected vocoder action on “Woods”), they also contributed some tracks to charity compilation “Dark Was The Night” like the amazing “Brackett, WI”.

If you need any more reasons to check them out look no further than below, an acapella version of “For Emma” from the La Blogotheque podcast.
