Prick Tunes: Bon Iver "Blindsided" and "I Can't Make You Love Me/Nick of Time"

In honor of Bon Iver's two Grammys* last night, here are two more interesting web performances, the first being from a Myspace Transmissions studio session in 2008. The song is "Blindsided" which can originally be found on For Emma, Forever Ago.

*One of which was for Best New Artist, hilariously elucidating just how truly out of touch the Grammy's truly are.

The second song is a bonus track that can be found on the Calgary single, and this video was available to those who (IIRC) pre-bought Bon Iver, Bon Iver through iTunes. This finds Justin Vernon taking a run through a medley of two Bonnie Raitt tunes continuing Bon Iver's tradition of cagily choosing material to cover that outsiders wouldn't typically associate them with. It's fucking gorgeous.
