The second edition of Sounds From A Safe Harbour (SFASH) returns to Cork city next week, Thursday to Sunday, September 14-17, with a stellar lineup including three humongous shows at the Opera House: Lisa Hannigan, the RTÉ Symphony Orchestra and Aaron Dessner on Thursday, Bon Iver on Friday, and the National on Saturday. Needless to […]

I don’t know who Channing Tatum is, but he introduced Bon Iver on Saturday Night Live this weekend. It’s been a while since I have seen Bon Iver perform, but ‘Holocene’ has lost none of its qualities and still sounds as frest as the first time. The same can be said for ‘Beth/Rest’, which still […]

Professor Penguin call themselves a collective. They have a cast of six that rises to nine at times. And they take after another band with a completely daft name, Bombay Bicycle Club. BBC have defied what was expected of them around 2006 when they appeared on the landfill indie scene and are now renowned by […]

Click after the jump for Bon Iver’s third song of the night, ‘Calgary’, Feist performing ‘Bittersweet Melodies’ and ‘How Come You Never Go There’ and Mastadon doing ‘Curl Of The Burl’. Read what Jim Carroll thought of Bon Iver’s step up to the Grand Canal last week, on On The Record. And the rest of […]

One of my favourite songs on Bon Iver’s second album, ‘Towers’ sounded wonderful on Jools’s live show from last night. Justin Vernon et al bring the show to Dublin’s Grand Canal Theatre on Thursday. It’s probably going to be majestic. Also last night, Feist played ‘The Bad In Each Other’ and Mastadon brought along ‘Black […]

Moths is 18-year-old Jack Colleran. He’s won plenty of fans in the past few months for his dreamy electronica creations. Here he’s had a go at remixing Bon Iver’s Blood Bank song ‘Babys’. The original is already pretty great so it would be difficult to make it sound poor. There’s very little tickering done by […]

Every blogger’s dream has surely come through now that James Blake and Bon Iver have collaborated on a track. It started with a tweet, it’s come to ‘Fall Creek Boys Choir’ and in October we could be looking at more than just the one track from the pair, with Enough Thunder slated for then. But […]

A really nice video for a magnificent song. It was shot in Iceland and directed by NABIL. ‘Holocene’ is the second single to be taken from Bon Iver’s stunning double-barreled self-titled second album. Anybody up for a trip to Iceland? (via Disco Naivete)
