However, the element of Volcano Choir that really brings its sound into its own is prominent electronic production tactics. Pre-order on , , or direct from. Get it on , , or direct from. Moreover, Repave is the sound of confident musicians extending their reach to anthemic peaks and pulling back to reveal moments of the utmost vulnerability, sure enough of themselves to let those moments stand on their own. Volcano Choir will head to Europe for the first time ever in November.
More info on the video and the 551 Project below. Repave is out September 3rd. What has a bushy beard, a heartbreaking falsetto, collaborates with Kanye West and has yet to release a third Bon Iver album? In conclusion, this project is about making art with friends, new and old, and helping each other become better at what we all love to do. The project was the focused minds of dozens of filmmakers— cinematographers, gaffers, grips, actors, directors, and musicians — working to create for the sake of creating and growing as artists together. It takes that musical playground and houses it in the context of a specific sound.
Repave focuses on the love and bond between the members of Volcano Choir, how their friendships were fortified over the years-long process of writing and recording these songs. With each verse you can sense that somebody somewhere could be listening to this music and getting stronger, feeling better. And this land might be in the bubbling center of a Volcano. A soupcon of heart and soul. The drums come crashing and the guitars incandescing as the chorus really rocks in a way that is both unexpected and delightful.
See the tour dates below and get. The band is out West first thing next year. The belief that camaraderie leads to creativity is a key principle of 551. Not only is the music tonally beautiful and impressive, but the lyrics are also subtly and understatedly brilliant. Not just with themselves, as has been made evident by a successful album, but also in blending several deeply rifted styles of music.
The glitch-laden, cautious presentation of the band's previous work serves as points of both reference and departure across these eight songs, the product of growing conviction and trust, of a fully-operational band, gifted in shading and nuance, and rumbling with power. Guitars are phased and glitched across the stereo plane, and percussion moves between marching-band snare drums and extremely low pounding rhythms in the style of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It is, of course, Justin Vernon. Unlike the simple warmth of The Shouting Matches or the backwoodsy cabin-music feel of Bon Iver, Volcano Choir is something of an electro-orchestra wunderkind. In the course of two days, bands Vic and Gab, Volcano Choir, Victor Delorenzo, Grace Weber, and Jon Chi worked alongside a group of local filmmakers and creatives one weekend this past April in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to create the project that is now known as 551.
There is an openness to this work that won't be taken for granted — real, moving tales of change, sadness, loss and truth grace the wordplay of these tracks, an account of life between the fringes of poetry and reality. Rather than a song about being busted in the aftermath of a love gone wrong, listeners get a little oratory in chemical medicine and things not fitting where they fall. Also today, we are announcing a new live date on. Repave cements the idea of Volcano Choir that started with Unmap. .
The songs that make up Repave were started with Volcano Choir in mind and the first few songs formed were 'Alaskans', 'Acetate' and album highlight 'Almanac'. . . . . .
