Bon Iver has been getting a lot of press lately. From magazines to websites, word of mouth to a guest spot on The Colbert Report, people can’t seem to get enough of Justin Vernon, singer, guitarist, and song writer for the band. What is it about Vernon and his music that seems to be grasping people’s ears so much? To many, it’s the natural, rustic, calm feeling Bon Iver’s gentle guitar strumming and voice evokes in its listeners, a small shout out to a time less complicated, even if it only lasts as long as the album. Here, from Bon Iver’s newest LP, Bon Iver, is “Calgary,” a relaxed song that might induce a sense of much needed relief during your hectic Tuesday. Enjoy.
