Volcano Choir is the "side" project of Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and Wisconsin's Collections of Colonies of Bees. In 2009, they put out a stellar and understated album called Unmap that the office of Juxtapoz liked very much. And now that Vernon is a Grammy-award winner, he is back with the Choir and creating another great track, "Byegone," for the new album Reprave out September 3 on Jagjaguwar. The video was just released, featuring a tree, light sabers that blink, and a wonderfully serene experience directed by Michinori Saigo. (via pitchfork)
Oh, and look, Corey Arnold did the album cover!
