2011 was an whirlwind year for Justin Vernon. Not only did Bon Iver released a self-titled followup to For Emma, Forever Ago, Justin Vernon found himself collaborating with Kanye West. Vernon found himself on stage at Coachella in 2011 with Yeezy, providing the sample found in “Lost in the Woods” and for “Monster.”

Bon Iver’s self-titled debut was adored by the indie faithful and highly anticipated and did not disappoint. The critics adored the album, Metacritic aggregated scores to be an 86, which indicated “universal acclaim” and both Pitchfork and Paste dubbed Bon Iver as their Best Album of 2011. For all of Vernon and crew’s trouble, “Holocene” is Grammy nominated for Song of the Year and Bon Iver is Grammy nominated for Album of the Year.
