Bon Iver nominated for Grammys; "Who the Fuck Is Bon Iver?" tumblr is born

It's already been cause for everyone begging the question, “Will Bon Iver be the Arcade Fire of 2012?” (as did New York’s Village Voice Grammy nominations preview yesterday). Ben Clark (AKA @trikno) was the first to Tweet, “Who the fuck is Bon Iver?” in reference to a blog started last year around the Arcade Fire’s surprise win. And indeed, a similar tumblr site has already started up. (We wish we would have thought of it first.) And some hilarious Tweets from the confused masses, via Who the Fuck Is Bon Iver?:
