WATCH // Making of Bon Iver’s “Beth/Rest” Music Video

Making Of Bon Iver’s “Beth/Rest” Music Video from Picture Machine Productions on Vimeo.

A few weeks ago we shared Bon Iver’s new “Beth/Rest” video. At first glance, it’s a strange sight, following people made of light through their home that looks a great deal like an Ewok village. Today, we’re provided a special, behind-the-scenes look at the video and how it all came together. Justin Vernon tells us where his treatment originated and then takes us into the woods behind April Base for the set build. Many people had a hand in creating the video and we can now find out just how they made it happen. Watch above!

WATCH // Bon Iver – “Beth/Rest,” New 12″ Out Today in US

Bon Iver’s “Beth/Rest” is paired with an oddly stunning visual. Directed by both Dan Huiting and Justin Vernon, the video stars band member Mike Noyce in a dream-like world. In describing his treatment, Justin said, “It’s kind of about two people who are truly meant for each other and what happens to their essence. How they connect is some other thing that we don’t know how to really talk about.” The video was filmed in the Wisconsin woods surrounding April Base. Watch above or at Huffington Post.

In addition to the video, Bon Iver’s Beth/Rest 12″ is out today and available at SC Distribution! The A-side features the studio version of “Beth/Rest” while the B-side is a full-band recording of the same song from an August 2011 session at Rare Book Room. Beth/Rest will be released on November 12 in the UK.

Bon Iver Adds Tour Dates, Performs Live on SNL


It seems SNL made the right choice, at least according to Billboard, who writes, “Saturday Night Live righted its musical ship this weekend with a dreamy, horn-filled set from critical darlings Bon Iver.” Dreamy it was! The nine-piece band played grammy-nominated song “Holocene” and slow-jam rocker “Beth/Rest” beautifully. Happen to see a few of those smiles creep across faces on stage? We sure did! Rightfully so, Bon Iver delivered a set to be proud of and proud, we are.

Here’s an answer to what many have asked for: Bon Iver just added dates to their spring tour. After Australia, the gang comes home to a play a handful of west coast shows; Coachella, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Sasquatch are all on the list! Check out all the stops below! Watch “Holocene” and “Beth/Rest” above!  Read the rest of this entry »

Bon Iver Session on World Cafe Today!

courtesy of NPR

Oh for goodness’ sake, this is incredible.

Bon Iver recorded a session at the Rare Book Room Studio in Brooklyn for XPN’s World Cafe with David Dye. The whole band records acoustic versions of “Holocene” and “Beach Baby” and Justin does a solo piano version of “Beth/Rest” that will just fucking knock your socks off (or your mandals or your uggs or whatever).

You can check your local listings for broadcast times, but the show will be archived at the World Cafe page.
