Bon Iver: Amazing with Beards

Bon Iver is one of my favorite artists by far.  Their music is really chill and beautiful, and I love love love how like Mumford & Sons, they make full use of the fact that they are an all guys band to sing really intense harmonies.  And they have beards.  Yes.  
One of my favorite songs of theirs is "Skinny Love", which has these really cool guitar strumming parts in it.  Recently, the 15 year old British phenomenon Jasmine Van den Bogaerde (AKA Birdy) did a cover of this song, which although it had a bit of a different vibe from the original one, was also astoundingly listenable and enjoyable.  Below, I've posted both versions so you can decide which one you prefer.
