Record labels 4AD and Jagjaguwar recently released a 25-minute Bon Iver performance, starring Justin Vernon and bandmate Sean Carey. The session took place in London's AIR studio and consist of songs from Bon Iver's 2011 self-titled album as well as 2009's Blood Bank EP release. What makes this special is that they are extremely simplified versions of the original tracks, using only 2 microphones & 2 baby grand pianos. I know some believed that Bon Iver was somewhat overproduced (auto-tuning, Beth/Rest sax insanity) so this is a welcome treat.
