Volcano Choir: The rare Justin Vernon Bon Iver side project that makes it to a second album! Volcano Choir is Vernon’s project with the members of the Wisconsin post-rock band Collections Of Colonies Of Bees. “Byegone,” the first single from their sophomore LP Repave, is already more concrete and accessible than anything on their 2009 debut Unmap; it could almost be a Bon Iver song. The song’s new music video, from director Michinori Saigo, is just as gorgeously minimal and pastoral as the song. It shows a tree full of light-tubes that turn on and off in time with the song’s tidal rhythms. Check it out below.
Repave is out 9/3 on Jagjaguwar.
