For Fans of: Glen Hansard and Pitchfork fans.

Bon Iver is the essence of high quality, indie music.  With his unique sound and relaxing, yet emotive, vocal performances, Bon Iver is making my list of top artists to recommend for 2010.  NPR has labeled Bon Iver as being among the “50 Most Important Recordings of the Decade” and “For Emma, Forever Ago” was ranked number 29 in the Rolling Stone‘s Top 50 Albums of 2008.  Bon Iver has now formed a group called “Volcano Choir” with some old friends, but still more great music.  Check some of it below:
