[MP3] Bon Iver’s side project, Volcano Choir, release “Island, IS”

volcano choir

Bon Iver is known to be all artistic and awesome and junk, and so an artistic side project would of course be the way to go, right? Right. That’s exactly right. Volcano Choir is made of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Chicago’s own Collections of Colonies of Bees. The material was recorded before Bon Iver’s For Emma, Forever Ago sessions, so this is some older stuff we’re dealing with.

Jagjaguwar has released “Island, IS,” the first single from the band’s upcoming full-length, Unmap, and it’s solidly good. It’s not a lot special, but it’s got all that artistic merit you come to love from Bon Iver. What, you need more than artistic merit?? Yeah, that’s understandable. You’re not getting it with this song. The album is out September 22 on Jagjaguwar.
