Out of the dozens of Record Store Day releases unleashed last Saturday, Bon Iver and Peter Gabriel’s split 7″ was the one I lusted after most. The single featured Justin Vernon covering Peter Gabriel’s “Come Talk To Me”, a returned favor for Gabriel, who covered Bon Iver’s “Flume” for his underwhelming covers album, Scratch My Back.
Justin Vernon and co. give “Come Talk To Me” the typical Bon Iver treatment, giving it a fragile and lucid vibe that define what Bon Iver is all about. Then the band gave the song depth by throwing on some much appreciated percussion, making “Come Talk To Me” one of Bon Iver’s most upbeat recordings. You can listen to it at HypeM.
