Last week, Bon Iver released the deluxe edition of their 2011 self-titled album, featuring 10 videos corresponding to each track on the cd.  Bon Iver’s official website described the videos as “the comprehensive vision for the record captured in moving picture.  The visual works both complement and enrich the audio on the album…while not music videos per se, these visual accompaniments are striking in their distinctive atmosphere, and compelling works in their own right.”  Each video features stunning cinematography done by various artists, including Bon Iver’s own Justin Vernon, who brings a whole new dimension to one of this year’s best albums.  Check out the video for “Holocene” below, and head to Bon Iver’s official YouTube page to see them all.  -Diane Martin
