  1. Bon Iver Makes LP With Astronautalis

    Justin Vernon Makes LP With Rapper Astronautalis

    Justin Vernon and S. Carey of Bon Iver, Ryan Olson, founder of Vernon’s other band Gayngs, and the Minneapolis rapper Astronautalis, have made an album together, On the Tune points out. According to an interview with Astro in City Pages, the group is “hell-bent on getting [the album] out really quickly” and playing shows. 

    Astro tells City Pages that the group recently tracked the record at Vernon’s April Base studio in Wisconsin during a “whiskey-fueled weekend.” Vernon, Carey, and Olson created eight pieces of music, which he freestyled over for eight hours. But, according to City Pages, the album “will only sound like a hip-hop record to a certain degree.” The rapper documented the session on his Tumblr, offering some super scenic shots from the area surrounding Vernon’s studio.
