Bon Iver

Bon Iver's name is a play on a French word, actually pronounced bone eee-vare. Lead singer Justin Vernon (pictured) and his band are doing great stuff in the music industry. Bon Iver only has one full album out right now as well as one EP. He just released his new single "Calgary" for his upcoming album "Bon Iver, Bon Iver" which is set to be released June 21, 2011. Justin Vernon is known for his almost haunting falsetto voice. He also effectively uses a lot of harmony. It's definitely worth giving Bon Iver a listen, and definitely makes it easy to identify a Bon Iver track when you hear it. His most popular song is "Skinny Love" which is the first song I heard of Bon Iver and I really liked it and got into more. Some of my favorites are "Re: Stacks", "Blindsided", and "Flume". Every song is fantastic though, definitely listen to more if you like it.
