We have it on good authority that Justin Vernon and the members of post-rock collective Volcano Choir (which also shares bodies and brains with Milwaukee's Collections of Colonies of Bees) are en route to Tokyo right now, starting point for their first (and perhaps only) tour. Kinda begs the question: how much do the Japanese love this music? Trick question! You can't quantify love. Anyway, the band posted two video clips of a recent practice, one of which we've posted above. It's "Still," a gorgeous, sprawling Unmap highlight wherein you can find a Bon Iver vocal hook that Kanye loved so much he turned into another jam all his own. He has a great ear.
