Who knew Bon Iver (pronounced bon eevair) was down with the OPP!?
Frontman Justin Vernon has formed a hip-hop “inspired” band with rapper Astronautilis, and the duo recorded an ENTIRE ALBUM this past weekend!!
Justin plays back beat melodies and sings chorus to accompany Astro’s raps, while Bon Iver’s drummer S Carey occasionally pops up for a cameo.
We are VERY interested to hear this frankenstein (and we don’t mean that in a bad way!) of a record, and while no release date or any other info has been announced, the duo say they wish to debut the record ASAP.
Hipsters, ACT like you don’t care…
