Match made in heaven

Collaborations can be tricky business. It seems like one part tends to lose what they bring to the table or the result is so different from both artists to make the collaboration not really worth the names attached. This one, from Bon Iver and James Blake, works perfectly. While the two have a similar style, I definitely wouldn't put them in the same boat. However, the song, "Fall Creek Boys Choir" sounds like both of them, without sounding jumbled or as though one's song was played over the other. I feel as though you could remove Bon Iver's stuff and have something that sounds distinctively James Blake; or remove James Blake's stuff and have something that is quintessential Bon Iver.

Let's just say...chills.
