Bon Iver

Based on the french words for good winter (bon hiver) , Bon Iver created their first cd after Justin Vernon secluded himself in a cabin in Wisconsin after a stint of mono. Their first record For Emma, Forever Ago was created out of a very basic musical set-up, an acoustic guitar and a set of drums. No real engineering was done on the record, as if to conserve the true feel of the songs, although it was not intentional. The indie internet publication website Pitchfork awarded them with number one album of the year 2011. Earlier this year they won two out of four Grammies, for Best new artist and Best alternative music album.
