Bon Iver-Calgary (Official Video)

Leave a comment

Here’s some visuals for the song “Calgary” off Bon Iver’s self-titled album due out June 21.

I’m not sure what to think of the video. It’s dope, but also incredibly strange at the same time. Looks like Justin Vernon may have been hanging out with his buddy Kanye West lately, because this video has the same surreal/strange world/dream feel that a lot of Kanye’s videos have. Appearances from Raina Hein, who won America’s Next Top Model or some shit a couple years ago, and Ashton Kutcher a guy that looks like Ashton Kutcher, as well as some hipsters and a two legged bear thing. Okay, the video is confusing, but the song is still pretty dope.

Bon Iver is dropping his self-titled album late next month (June 21st). Here’s the first single off the album titled “Calgary,” the city in Alberta, Canada and the birthplace of some Tyler, The Creator critics. As you know, Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver project has done some stuff in the hip-hop mainstream, most notably a track on Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

This song is pretty nice, calm and reminds me of fishing in the summer. I really feel that I’m going to start moving back to some indie music as of late which is probably a reasonable trade-off for listening to hip-hop all the time. Of course, this mean you guys will be getting a nice variation of music. At least, for awhile.
