Re-introducing, Bon Iver!

Bon Iver has been around for a while; since 2007 he’s been considered an “underground” artist. So it’s ironic and appropriate that he win a Grammy for “Best New Artist”.

A couple of years back, a friend asked our music man Nathanael Sams whether he had heard the folk rock riffs of “Bon Iver”: he hadn’t.

Well, he had – he just hadn’t known it. Four singles of the alternative artist had been featured on the popular show “Chuck”.

So really, Bon Iver isn’t a “new artist”, rather a newly appreciated one.

"Best Alternative Album" & "Best New Artist"

Heavy folk guitars, string arrangements, saxophones, kick drums, and reverberated vocals channel a sound reminiscent of Mumford & Sons, with a little mandolin in between.

If you’re unsure whether or not you’ll enjoy his new album, a good test would be to watch the movie Once. If you enjoy the soundtrack in that film, you’re pretty much guaranteed to love Bon Iver’s new album…Bon Iver.
