I think it’s cool that bands like Grizzly Bear and (from Twilight) Iron and Wine get exposed to the teens and tweens who love Twilight, not just the grown folks who might have already been turned on to those bands. Even Rob agrees:

“There are a lot of artists who’re very low key and a lot of people don’t know about, who are going to be brought out to a really wide audience. That’s amazing.”
