Did anyone else see Bon Iver win the Grammy for Best New Artist last night? Pretty sweet for a midwestern guy without a major label production or promotion budget (Bon Iver is on Bloomington, Indiana’s Jagjaguwar.) The Arcade Fire winning last year’s album of the year was pretty sweet, but this is a whole new level of independent music achieving mainstream success and we couldn’t be happier about it.
For any fans out there, watch Justin Vernon and the Roots turn his song ”Perth” into an eight minute jam on Jimmy Fallon. Check out ?uestlove at 3:48– awesome!
