Bon Iver Calgary 12″ Out Now

 


The vinyl 12″ for Bon Iver’s “Calgary” b/w “I Can’t Make You Love Me / Nick of Time” is now available at independent retailers. A digital 12″ containing music videos for both is available at iTunes here. The video for the latter song captures the recording at April Base, and you can also watch it at YouTube below.

Gregory Euclide, the artist who made the beautiful three-dimensional paintings used for Bon Iver, Bon Iver and the Calgary 12″, was interviewed by Pitchfork for a “Take Cover” feature that ran today. You can see a video of the artwork being made and read more about Gregory’s process. You can check out close-ups of the piece here at his flickr page.

 

Bon Iver on Colbert, New Tour Dates

Happy release day, Jag fans! Today Bon Iver, Bon Iver is available in retail and online stores worldwide. We have also posted a second round of late 2011 US tour dates in the western part of the country here.

Last night Bon Iver rocked The Colbert Report like a ThirstIcane (whatever that is)! A delightful interview in which Stephen revealed that his wife does hot yoga to “Skinny Love” is below. We were hoping for cabin jokes, and we got them!

The band performed “Calgary” for the show and an online exclusive performance of “Skinny Love” that is easily my new favorite. Great job, gentlemen! We love and appreciate you.

 

 

Pink Mountaintops are METAL PROBLEM Watch “Through All the Worry”

Steve McBean and his band, Pink Mountaintops, were cast and appear as the band Metal Problem in the new film by Vancouver director Rob Leickner, Everything Louder Than Everything Else. The movie follows a woman who owns a recording studio, and Metal Theory records the song “Through All The Worry,” a new song by Pink Mountaintops. Steve McBean also performs in the movie (with lines and everything!). I totally buy that he’s in a rock band.

Everything Louder Than Everything Else is screening at the Plaza Theatre in Calgary on 6/20 at 9pm.

Pink Mountaintops will perform at Fuck Yeah Fest on September 3rd!

Bon Iver Releases Video for “Calgary” Win a Spot on the Fallon Band Bench

Today Bon Iver released a music video for the first single, “Calgary.” It was written by Justin Vernon and filmed at April Base Studios in Fall Creek, WI, directed by Andre Durand and Dan Huiting and produced by Daniel Cummings and Picture Machine Productions. I stopped watching America’s Next Top Model a few years ago, but the woman in the video (Raina Hein) was one of the two finalists in Cycle 14. There is a picture of her spooning the magnificent dog who lives at April Base, Gordon, on her website. Gordon should have a blog. Moving on…

Bon Iver is playing two television shows with the full 9-piece band next week. Monday, June 20th, is a performance on The Colbert Report and Tuesday the 21st (release day!!!) is Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

The Fallon show is offering Bon Iver fans a chance to be close to the performance. If you click on the link below you will be directed to enter the “Band Bench” contest where you win seats on the band benches that surround the stage during the performance. Click here and enter the band code “BIV” in your entry.

One last thing: yesterday I mentioned that Bon Iver was on the cover of the July issue of SPIN. Today that article is now available to read online. Go! Read it!
