The Solitude Hangover: So you’re Bon Ivering it somewhere or out of obligations or just spending a lot of time near-ish familiar strangers: you’re alone, and it’s kind of great.
Bon Iver associate's new solo LP lands in April.
Bon Iver sideman S. Carey is going to release his new album Range Of Light next month, and if you haven’t already checked it out, I heartily recommend first single “Fire-Scene” and its stunning video. Now he’s shared another one called “Crown The Pines,” and it’s just as formless and pretty, its voices and violins [...]

Bon Iver’s music mysteriously disappeared from Spotify yesterday, and Bon Iver fans are pissed. This is just a sampling of the outrage from Bon Iver’s RABID fans: The explanation, which we’ve just heard back from Spotify: Apparently, there was a transfer of rights and unfortunately we were not informed.

If the first song off Coldplay’s next album sounded like a bad parody of Bon Iver, then their first single sounds like The xx—in the best way. While “Midnight” was mush-mouthed and self-serious—the video had Chris Martin dancing with...Show More Summary
After hearing Ellie Goulding‘s lovely Divergent cut “Beating Heart,” we now get another lush electronic soundscape from the film courtesy of M83. “I Need You” finds Anthony Gonzalez‘ voice heavily filtered in that Bon Iver style (he’s just the latest to exhibit a Justin Vernon influence) amidst strings and waves of synths. Once the drums... More »
Midnight sees Coldplay doing their best Bon Iver impression. Come on Chris. Justin Vernon would never do those dance moves even if he was holed up in his cabin. Props on the indecipherable singing though!

Who is Bonnie Bear? He’s the new lead singer of Coldplay, after former-frontman Chris Martin was recently found dead, buried under a two-ton pile of GOOP. It’s a stark departure for the mega-popular British band, who traded arena-rock for quiet-yawns on the likely first single, “Midnight,” for their sixth album. Bears gotta hibernate, y’know.
Coldplay has never been a subtle group. When they’re at their best, they make big, dumb arena rock songs that can be truly catchy and even great. When they’re at their worst, they make bad parodies of same—self-serious artsy tunes that aim for the heights of Radiohead or earlier U2 but nosedive straight into a teardrop waterfall of sappiness.

Coldplay share a new single, "Midnight" and it sounds a lot like Bon Iver. New Album news is imminent. Read more articles like "Coldplay – “Midnight”" on PMA - Pretty Much Amazing.
Surprise! A new Coldplay song. And video. But mostly a song — pressumably off their upcoming sixth album — but that remains unconfirmed. "Midnight" is a hazy shade of Imogen Heap meets Bon Iver, and it's completely different from the band's last album, 2011's Mylo Xyloto, which rang with Chris... More »

Last month we heard the first single off the new album by S. Carey, best known for his work in Bon Iver. Now that song, “Fire-Scene,” has a music video with some stunning visuals. The clip blends shots of nature with ones of cities, but captures both with an equal sort of majesty. It’s really [...]
