Stems Project: Winners Announced
October 2, 2012
And we have our winners!
Beginning last August, we released the individual song stems from our latest album Bon Iver, Bon Iver at music-based social networking site Indaba Music. Remixers were then given the opportunity to uploaded and share their finished creations with the world. A fierce public voting period followed to assist us in finding the best remixes out of all submitted. In the end, ten winners were hand-selected by us.
Each winner has earned a spot on the official Bon Iver, Bon Iver: Stems Project remix album exclusive to music-streaming service Spotify.
Band members Sean, Reggie, Matt and Lewis plus a few of our other fellow comrades created their own remixes which we released throughout the duration of the contest. These six remixes are included on the official release as bonus tracks.

Two honorable mentions were picked per song and can be heard exclusively at Indaba Music (click the individual contest page to hear that song's honorable mentions).
Justin recently visited a few of our friendly Minnesota neighbors at Minnesota Public Radio affiliate station The Current to help out with an all-Eau Claire edition of the station's appropriately named weekly local music-focused show The Local Show. Great new and old Eau Claire music was showcased!
