I have such a hard time deciding where to post videos and songs, so yes, I know this is a little bit late. But this video just makes me so happy and angry at the same time.

I’m happy because I love how good this performance is. It’s live, it’s uncut, and it’s just pure talent. It makes me angry because I think about how many artists out there are just awful. Just fucking god awful. The Black Eyed Peas, Britney Spears, Kesha, they can all take their auto-tune songs and all get destroyed in a tornado and I wouldn’t care one bit. Bon Iver and this performance is a display of real talent that most of this country has neglected, and that makes me so fucking angry. But at least I can live with myself knowing I will never be caught with Tik Tok as my ringtone. Not ever.

When I first heard Stereo Hearts, I was pretty unmoved. I used to be a pretty good Gym Class Heroes fan, but of course GCH has kind of deviated from their original feel. But then I heard the Collin McLoughlin cover, I definitely gave it another chance. I think the Collin McLoughlin cover is a touch better, but I can’t help but feel that GCH might have another radio hit on their hands. Give both a listen, but if not, at least watch the video of Collin McLoughlin covering it in a medley of other songs you all may or may not like.
