Song of the Day – 1/16/2011
We all know who Kanye West is. Moving on.
Bon Iver is one of those “Indie Artists” that has garnered a ton of recognition in the past few years, but most people still have no idea who they are. Since their debut in 2008, Pitchfork(.com)-wielding hipsters have championed their music, but i suspect they’ll no longer have to spread the word now that they are featured prominently on Kanye’s newest album.
This song is GREAT. According to Wikipedia, the song starts with a sample from Bon Iver’s “Woods,” which i would assume you’ll be searching for within moments.
