Bon Iver on SNL

Every once in so often, a band comes along with a magical sound that defies description. In February, I’d caught two performances by Bon Iver on ¬†Saturday Night Live. I’d never heard of the band before, but give props to SNL, once again, for bringing a band to the nation’s consciousness.

As far back as I can remember, SNL has introduced to me to new music. In an era of social media , late night TV shows probably aren’t as popular as they once were. Now that you can see these shows on the web the day after they air, I think they’re going to continue to be a prominent source of music discovery, mainly because of the live performance element that you can’t get with music videos.

Here are there performances. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
