Bon Iver · Calgary

Whole lotta love for that upper Midwest music

I’m either a real early adopter or a very late bloomer when it comes to music, or really anything, and I definitely matured into Bon Iver a little later than half the ‘net. My first taste of the group was when listening to GAYNGS‘ debut album, Relayted. I was introduced to it all by Ryan Olson, the dude who put it all together, and had already heard of SOLID GOLD, but despite their internet fandom I wasn’t all that keen to them. And I must admit it took me a while to understand Bon Iver’s folksy vibe, it’s really not one I’m all too familiar with. But once I did, I can understand why half the internet is obsessed with these Indie Folk fellows.

In anticipation for their upcoming self-titled LP, Bon Iver has released a single for a preview of what’s to come. “Calgary” is a another reminiscing track that bleeds heart from the upper Midwest. But I guess we’ll have to see how it’s all put together when the LP is released June 21st. Till then… side note: this would’ve been a great song last month when we were knee deep in snow.
