Bon Iver - Skinny Love Live on Colbert

by Rob Kovacich • 561,668 views

Bon Iver playing Skinny Love after the show. This is the version they used in concert at Edgefield in Oregon on the 24th of Oct. The other band members have a clap-stomp part to play and it is...

talk show hosts must have some killer vinyl collections.

Why is everything reversed in the video?  It's like looking in a mirror.

So funny - I'm sitting here thinking 'either this is reversed or he's ambidextrous'

Just watching videos of Justin live and it's on my bucket list to see their concert! My 9 year old sister heard the beginning and immediately rushed to where I was sitting so she could watch/listen with me! I've taught her well!!

He is playing this left handed - switch - which is crazy impressive.

The video is reversed to avoid copyright

+Adam B  an equally impressive technic; I had no idea that would prevent copyright.

Justin - My sis loves the Minnesota, WI T-shirt I bought her.  Bought one for myself - I like it too.  Got Bon Iver's albums and continuing to follow you on your journey; Keep it up.  - One of your countless fans.

Damn...I'd like thank Emma for causing so much heartbreak to this guy. This is why I love the internet and HATE autotuning. If I could time travel, I'd go back and kill whoever invented autotuning.

Emma isn't a person, She is an idea.

comments from a 7th grade middle school music class:  lively sound, good guitar skills, very rhythmic, Bon Iver has a high, unique singing voice!

Yeah guys maybe he plays lefty and righty... or maybe the video is just mirrored -_- lol.

+Tyler Lizotte You didn't mention his tattoo. You said "maybe it's mirrored" and Carl just confirmed it. Your first suggestion is the most doltish thing I've read all day.
Report spam or abuse
+Shane Gibbs That wasn't a suggestion. I was being sarcastic, because people kept commenting on how they didn't know he played left and right guitar, and how cool it was. Are you both that doltish to think I was being serious? No shit it's mirrored, that's what I was trying to say.

Intima, evocativa e suggestiva versione di una canzone dolce ma un po' malinconica... Buonanotte!

There should be a microphone for each person behind Justin...

Jesus Murphy! On all of his other performances he plays the guitar right handed and on this one he does it left handed. Damn it the guy can do everything!

The uploader flipped the video because it dodges some copyright stuff.

YouTube sometimes removes certain videos on copyright grounds, flipping the video helps prevent that.

I want to close my eyes so I can lose myself in the song... In the sound of his voice... but I force myself to look because seeing him perform is so much better

I think this is my favorite version

The clip was mirrored because of copyright issues, so no, the image is simply backwards.

Bon Iver is the original writer and composer. Birdy did a cover of this.

TRUE! totally agree with you... it aint just about voice! bon iver delivers it emotionally. which is what really matters in the end.

I don't think that off beat clap was necessarily unintentional. It was on an off beat and it worked well in my opinion.

You are a kid though. You are legally defined as a minor. Your over reactive response shows a level of maturity expected of a typical 15 year old, not of a 15 year old who has been through a lot and matured more quickly. I know that at your age you think you're highly developed and different from all the other kids. You'll develop more mentally and emotionally in the next 3 years of your life than you have in the last 10. You are a child by definition.

I can't wait to get my bon iver lyrics! ''I told you to be patience, fine, balanced, kind'' on my ribs under my boobs, means so much to me.

At the beginning i was like: who the hell is Boney Bear?
Report spam or abuse
Agree, this is wierd, right! I thought I was going nuts. Maybe he is playing left handed, then I notice the tattoo on his neck/shoulder is on the other side as well?? Truly disconcerting. But, love the performance anyway!
