Volcano Choir

Well if the name Justin Vernon or Bon Iver means anything to you then you need to listen up.  Vernon and his fellow Wisconsonites from the group Collections of Colonies of Bees are working on an experimental side project called Volcano Choir.  The album is called Unmap and will be released for the world on September 22, 2009.  Justin Vernon is quoted saying ” We started collaborating three years ago and just this year we started to realize we had nine or ten tracks almost done,” he said. “I sing on it, but there aren’t a lot of lyrics– it’s definitely more on the experimental side of things.”   The single from the new album is titled Island, Is.    This entire album is very different from what we are use to hearing these days although it does have the unmistakable voice of Justin Vernon and that is never a bad thing.  In all honesty, you could say that the main influence of this album is the intense love of music that we all share.
