VOTD: A work of fiction

New Bon Iver video kicks off a series promoting the deluxe re-release.

Googling “Hinnom, TX” will produce a bunch of pages about song lyrics, but no directions to any city. That’s 'cause it doesn’t exist! Except in Bon Iver’s excellent self-titled album, which former OKSee helmsman Stephen Carradini and I recently agreed upon as a definite Top 10 OKSee Record of 2011.

This song really stands out from when I caught the band’s Kansas City set at the Uptown Theater a few months ago, mostly just because it was kinda humorous visually. Those lofty-pitched backing vocals came from Reggie Pace (a stout, cheerful black man) and Michael Noyce (a skinny, mousy, mop-haired white guy), who were standing at opposite sides of the stage. Opposites attract to form beautiful tones, I suppose.

Watch as the sun does its best impression of a living being:



AS-OF-THIS-MORNING UPDATE: The band’s posted all 10 of the aforementioned videos to its official YouTube page. Gorge yourself on these visually stunning vids, friends.
