Bon Iver Performs On Austin City Limits
Bon Iver‘s frontman Justin Vernon made his name as the guy who “recorded an album alone in the woods.” Bon Iver’s 2007 album For Emma, Forever Ago was met with both critical and commercial acclaim and whetted appetites for more of the artist’s bare-bones sound and unflinchingly honest lyricism. Vernon’s self-titled follow-up in 2011 was received with similar fanfare, a lushly orchestrated record that built on his unique brand of rustic folk music and showcased a greater vocal range. Last night, Bon Iver’s performance on Austin City Limits was aired by PBS, a medley of songs drawn primarily from their second album and a selection of fan favorites. Watch the video above for live footage of a group who has touched an impressive range of listeners during their short tenure.
