Woods Stacks

Woods is still a favourite song of mine and I was very happy when my dj sister Das Hussy remixed the song. With the forthcoming release of the new Kanye album and Bon Iver being featured on it, we can only hope that Justin Vernon doesn’t become the next Chris Martin. Anyways, below is das hussy remix of Woods and the Tomas Barfood remix of Re: Stacks. Bon Iver on the dance floor. DL that.

One more thing. In related Bon Iver music, get Gayngs feat Har Mar Superstar cover of George Michael’s One More Try at stereogum.

Woods

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 up in the woods
I’m down on my mind
I’m building a still
