I’m not so big on indie or rock music. However, Woods is the standout song released on the Blood Bank EP by Bon Iver this January. Dropping all guitars and instruments, Woods is multi layers of R&B a cappella sprinkled with autotune. Sorry, Kanye, this is the new Cher.
According to wiki, the name, Bon Iver, is a corruption of the French “bon hiver” (good winter), or a misspelling of “bon ivre” (good Drunk). Sounds like another hit.
Now, I’m waiting for a slamming deep house remix.

I’m down on my mind
I’m building a still
