A few months ago, I saw Bon Iver perform at the Hollywood Forever cemetery. The event began at midnight with a screening of Wes Anderson’s first film Bottle Rocket and an episode of Planet Earth. At 5am, after a couple of different playlists (chosen by Justin Vernon himself), Buddhist monks blessed the stage and at 6, Bon Iver played as the sun rose. It was incredible. Here’s a track off For Emma, Forever Ago, the debut album and one of my favorite of the year (if not decade).
Swedish electro group Miike Snow has been blowing up and I’m really excited to see them at Coachella this year. They gained notoriety by remixing tons of stuff, but here’s a remix of one of their original tracks.
