Volcano Choir: not that different from Bon Iver! No, just kidding, this is pretty out there in comparison to For Emma, Forever Ago. Justin Vernon's collaboration with Collections of Colonies of Bees follows the same "torn-down-by-the-world-but-I'm-still-optimistic" road that Vernon has made a mega-career out of, but more inclined to branch off into warm electronic side streets. Has dude been listening to a lot of Prefuse 73? Maybe. But maybe he just got tired of people freaking out about how he chopped his own wood in the forest. Now we can all get super into how he programmed his own songs in ProTools! So rustic.
