We brought you Bon Iver’s performance of “Skinny Love” a few months ago. Here’s another beautiful performance from Bon Iver. Simple arrangement and wonderful harmonies as he performs “Flume” for MySpace Transmissions Studio.
Combover+synthesizer+obsession with 1 cheesy video effect=our first Video Wars Submission in a long time. Bonus: serious introspection at the 0:47 mark.
What’s up Izzy and Jon? Whatchu got?
If you are currently on a hallucinogenic drug, you owe it to yourself to watch this video. Well, even if you’re not on one, watching this video could inspire you to try it. Art that is…..
Fan produced video. Sufjan really makes this his own song with this rendition.
Funky little animation accompanies the song…
A performance of “Skinny Love” from the album For Emma, Forever Ago by Bon Iver, the performance name of Justin Vernon. Vernon wrote the album while retreating into the northwestern Wisconsin wilderness following the breakup of his long-time band. Give For Emma, Forever Ago a listen to. It’s a rare album in many ways, but particularly in its cohesiveness. You might find yourself hoping Bon Iver suffers another personal or professional setback so he’ll again produce a beautiful record like this one. You don’t need to feel guilty if that’s the case.
Another great artist on Subpop Records. Sam Beam is a talented singer-songwriter that records and performs under the name Iron and Wine. The song featured in the video, “Upward Over the Mountain,” appears on Iron and Wine’s album The Creek Drank the Cradle. This is another great song without an artist produced video to accompany it, so enjoy this video produced by Xavier Reivax. It’s not half-bad. The second song featured is Grant-Lee Phillip’s “St. Expedite.”
One of my all-time favorite songs, “Lakes of Canada.” The Innocence Mission features husband and wife Don and Karen Peris crafting beautiful acoustic music around Karen’s striking voice. I couldn’t find an actual video produced by the band, so this is a random video put up by a fan. Enjoy the pumpkin carving.
