The Onion AV Club says of the release, “Moen deepens and expands on Inter-Be’s rich palette, building out Pisano’s meditative and even somber songs into complex, layered creations spiced with surprising fills, melodic touches, and glitchier elements that keep the mood from ever settling in one place.” Minnesota Public Radio praises the music saying, “Using guitar pedals like paint brushes with a palette of colors, Pisano manages to make the duo fill every inch of the musical canvas with bright sounds and thick melodies, resulting in a lush feel.” Consequence of Sound lauds the band’s second release “evolv[ing] a more coherent signature sound” and gives Garden of Arms 4 out of 5 stars.

You can buy the album right now from SC Distribution or through iTunes Indie Music Spotlight.

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.
