Wisconsin based Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon has released a new song entitled "Calgary," and it's nothing short of spectacular. Wait, what's that? You haven't heard of Bon Iver? Not only did the band release one of the best albums of 2008 (the absolutely brilliant For Emma, Forever Ago), but Justin also did some guest vocals on Kanye West's "Lost In The World" off of My Dark Twisted Fantasy. Basically over the last couple of years Justin has exploded onto the national and international consciousness and built up a giant cult following.
While it's true, he's Justin Vernon and not Justin Bieber, I implore you to listen to his new song "Calgary," available to stream and/or download on the official Bon Iver website. It's a dreamy, slow builder that you can totally get lost inside of.
Bon Iver's also got a handful of just-announced North American tour dates up on his website. Look out for Bon Iver's self-titled second album, which comes out in June.
