After playing four consecutive nights at Radio City Music Hall, Bon Iver ended their New York City run with an incredible concert at the Lower East Side’s Angel Orensanz Foundation, a gorgeous venue housed in a gothic revival synagogue. Frank Ocean opened the night and Justin and the gang later took the stage for the last performance in The Fader and vitaminwater uncapped 2012 series. Watch the encore of “The Wolves (Act I and II)” above! Read more about the show HERE.
Earlier this year, Bon Iver headed south to tape a live performance for PBS’s long running show, Austin City Limits. Heading into their 38th season, ACL will begin to air those new episodes starting this October, with Bon Iver’s scheduled for the 13th. Watch Justin Vernon and the gang perform “Towers” in the ACL preview above!
The Silver Lake Chorus will self-release “From The Snow Tipped Hills” b/w “Wreckage” on September 14. Premiering today at Pitchfork, “From The Snow Tipped Mountains” is a song written especially for the group by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, while “Wreckage” came from The New Pornographers’ AC Newman. Listen to the gorgeous recording below!
For those unfamiliar, The Silver Lake Chorus is a collective of 25 singers who rock indie music by way of choral arrangements. Based in Los Angeles, TSLC is led by artistic and music directors Sam Rader and Mikey Wells. You may know the group from the theme song for the SNL feature film MacGruber or their work on The Lonely Island and Akon’s single, “I Just Had Sex.”
