Bon Iver – “Perth”

No Comments 07 June 2011

We have the second taste of ’s upcoming self-titled release.  Swelling from an elegant guitar riff into a full on symphony with the help of a children’s choir and marching drums, “Perth” finds the group again expanding their sound this time to reach the heavens.  The -esque vibe of this new track is definitely making this my most awaited release of the year–June 21st if you forgot.

These days there is no shortage of two-man groups making significant music (e.g. MGMT, Black Keys, Death from Above 1979, etc.) The LA duo is no exception.   Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty create intricately layered atmospheric post-rock through the use of a double neck guitar/bass, drums, and a plethora of pedals.   Formed in 2003, has released four studio albums including last year’s It’s Still Like a Secret.   With a sound likened to or , El Ten Eleven have an exploring sound with half (or less than half) the members.  Listen below to two of our favorites off their latest album below.
