Bon Iver wears dad khakis to appeal to his NPR-wave fans
2k11 has been suffering from the worst buzz drought in the history of the indiesphere. Such a drought that Bon Iver's snooze-wave album accidentally became 'critically acclaimed', but it was mainly because of the implosion of the sub-prime mortgage buzz loan vibes in ruralwave albums/artists. Although Bon Iver has vintage indie 'cred', his latest snoozefest post-kanye collab was way overvalued, and now confused outlets like NPR 'accidentally thought it was actually good'.
Anyways, he was spotted wearing dad khakis. Not really cool dad vibes, more of a comfy dad, going to his chill middle-management job. Maybe putting on a bit of weight, going for a size 36-38 dockers pleated khakis type of vibe. He seems comfortable, versatile. Ready to go from the office to his kids' soccer game. This is clearly a shameless attempt to appeal to NPR-wave fans who also wear khakis while driving home from work searching for buzz album recommendations and feeling 'cultured' bc they listen to humans with soothing voices and/or foreign accents saying stuff that sounds 'progressive and insightful' but is actually just mid-market liberal propaganda.
