Song of the Day

Kanye West feat. Bon Iver - Lost in the World
--------------------Ketchup and mustard, indie guys and beards - some combinations are so harmonious, they are accepted and even celebrated (No Shave November). We like our collaborations in music, too. Beyonce and Jay-Z, She & Him and Conan O'Brien, and Aerosmith and Run DMC are key examples of perfect music collaborations.

  Then Mr. West releases his Pitchfork Perfect 10 album with the oddest partner to collaborate with him yet. Bon Iver offered his hushed and mournfully magical rock chops to My Beautiful, Dark, Twisted Fantasy, and you have to wonder what this will sound like, right?

  Lyrically, it definitely rings of a song written by Iver. But everything else is very Kanye, with the copious amounts of autotune, soaring choir and hip-hop beats throughout. It's an inneresting collaboration to say the least, and whether I love it or meh it, I can't say. But have a listen and see what you think.
