I'm not really a Kristen Stewart fan, but I was procrastinating today, surfing around Hulu, and I ended up watching this interview with her on Jimmy Fallon, and guess who they start talking about towards the end? Bon Iver! And Jimmy said that Bon Iver was the name of Justin's dad's cabin that he stayed in while making the album, anyone know if that's true? I was wondering how he got the name Bon Iver.

Yes, I had heard that, as well, just wasn't sure why he picked "good winter", but if it is the name of his father's cabin, that would make sense, maybe it was a cabin built for a winter, where one could go have a good winter.

Really love this photo, found it on Bon Iver's Last.fm page. I'm usually not much of a tattoo fan, but really love what's inked on the inside of his arm.

hmmm...Wouldn't good winter in French be 'bon hiver', pronounced like bon iver though...I don't know.

Anyway, I'm loving Bon Iver lately. I found them a while back after coming across this collaboration with Lykke Li. So brilliant!

You're right, cause it's been noted before in articles about Bon Iver, that it's "good winter" in French, however, purposely spelled incorrectly.

And oh, haven't seen that video before, look forward to watching it later! Thanks for posting it!

Bon Iver releases live charity album

Bon Iver has released a recording of a charity show at mainman Justin Vernon's old high school in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

Called 'A Decade With Duke', the album is a collaboration between Vernon and jazz ensemble Eau Claire Memorial Jazz 1.

Featuring songs from Bon Iver's critically acclaimed album 'For Emma, Forever Ago', such as 'Lump Sum' and 'For Emma', the album also sees Vernon performing jazz classics such as 'Lady Is A Tramp' and 'Bewitched'.

Vernon did the show to help raise money to send the jazz band to New York to take part in the Essentially Ellington competition, where they came third.

Released both physically and digitally, the CD is only available from Brickhouse Music, Morgan Music, and from the Volume One office in the Eau Claire area. For those outside of Wisconsin, a digital copy is available from various online retailers.

The tracklisting for 'A Decade With Duke' is as follows:

Essentially Ellington set:

'Wind Machine'
'Symphony In Riffs'
'Moon Over Cuba'
'Happy Go Lucky Local'
'Portrait of Louie Armstrong' (featuring Bruce Hering)
'Bye Bye Blackbird'

Justin Vernon set:

'Lump Sum'
'Rocks in My Bed' (featuring Addie Strei)
'Bewitched'
'Miss Otis Regrets'
'For Emma'
'Lady Is a Tramp'
'Since I Fell For You' (featuring Mike Noyce)
'Satisfied Mind'

So we all know Justin Vernon is the biggest music genius of the 21st century, but Bon Iver's drummer Sean Carey has recently released a solo album that is pretty effing epic, too.

S. Carey - All We Grow





Beyond beautiful


And Justin Vernon has collaborated with Anaïs Mitchell on her album Hadestown, which was released earlier this year, and Justin is featured on 7 songs. Definitely worth checking out, too:




I want to see Bon Iver live sooo bad, but they're never in Europe, it seems.

It's amazing, isn't it?! My favorite song as of late. Seriously obsessed with all things Vernon at the moment.

I recently downloaded this Justin Vernon Comp torrent:
thepiratebay.org/torrent/5903426/Justin_Vernon_%28Bon_Iver%29_Comp
It's amazing, it has lots of his older stuff that I hadn't been able to find before. Lots of things still missing, unfortunately. But it's so impressive how one person can make so many beautiful songs in so little time. Love him <3
