In case you haven't already heard, Pitchfork Media just gave Bon Iver's new album Bon Iver, Bon Iver (officially dropping tomorrow) a rare 9.5 rating. That's the best of the year - so far. The Twitter reaction:
Meanwhile, Rolling Stone is streaming the album free all day.
Tonight, our own Electric Fetus hosts an album listening party, selling the new album a day early along with a limited number of posters given away with purchase as well as a bonus, 3-track CD single featuring "Wisconsin," "Come Talk To Me," and the Bonnie Raitt cover medley "I Can't Make You Love Me / Nick of Time." The bonus CD will be raffled off during the listening party (no purchase necessary, must be present to win). They will also have the group's new "Calgary" 12" single (also featuring the Bonnie Raitt medley) available for purchase two weeks before its official release on July 5th.
You can catch Bon Iver performing on The Colbert Report tonight and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night; our embedded reporter @thebitchelor promises some behind-the-scenes updates.
