The deluxe edition of the latest Bon Iver album comes with extensive visual accompaniment.
“Bon Iver, Bon Iver” is a pretty visual album. Unlike “For Emma, Forever Ago,” which was cold and isolated, evoking the feeling of its actual genesis, a man locked away in a frosty cabin in the throes of winter, Bon Iver‘s latest thrives on its warmth and detail, to which a view of a pretty landscape or simply a walk through the park may enhance its listening experience.
Still, for those of you who live in a city or simply don’t have the time for a walk, the deluxe edition of the album contains a DVD of each song accompanied by nature-ific videos, ranging from shots of green forests to highway-side sunsets. I personally don’t feel the shots of glaciers that frontlight “Holocene” suit its warm, nostalgic haze, but there’s no denying the gorgeousness of these videos.
“Michicant” is particularily interesting as its nature shots follow the path of a mysterious monolith, like the one in “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Check out that one below, and go see the rest over at Bon Iver’s YouTube page.
