Bon Iver's new CD is amazing and since he is on SPIN and Rolling Stone, and pretty much everywhere these days I don't think I need to explain more. Here he is on the late show with Jimmy Fallon covering Bonnie Rait's "I Can't Make You Love Me."
The cover art is nothing short of amazing either. Check out Gregory Euclide's collages if you get the chance.
