I stay stanning for the Staves; maybe somebody the rest of the world will catch up, especially now that the Stavely-Taylor sisters are official members of the reactivated Bon Iver. Your latest chance to get on board with this extremely talented band is Kelly Teacher’s video for French horn-laden If I Was highlight “Horizons,” which features the Staves having a blast at last year’s Eaux Claires festival. (They’ll be back for year two, teamed with the classical ensemble yMusic.) The footage is fun; the music is fantastic. Watch below.
If I Was is out now on Nonesuch.
