Bon Iver - "Holocene" Music Video

Bon Iver Justin Vernon

Indie-folk band Bon Iver just released the official music video for their hit song “Holocene,” which is a track off of their self-titled sophomore album.

Personally, “Holocene” isn’t one of my favorite Bon Iver songs (I much prefer “Perth,” Minnesota, WI,” & “Michicant”), so naturally I’m not a huge fan of the video. Nevertheless, it’s a well crafted video that’s quite fitting for “Holocene.”

Bon Iver is slated to begin their North American tour in September, followed by a European one in October and November.

Alexander - "Truth" Music Video

Alex Ebert Alexander Edward Sharpe Magnetic Zeroes

Check out the new music video for the song “Truth” by Alex Ebert aka Alexander. If his voice sounds familiar to you, it’s because he’s also the lead singer of the band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and Ima Robot.

“Truth” is one of those ultra-catchy songs that gets stuck in your head for days— kind of like “Home.” The video for “Truth” is pretty strange— but that’s to be expected I guess. It features an array of beards and lots of white body paint. Take a look after the jump.
