Up until recently I didn't really think anything interesting came from Wisconsin. That was until I heard Bon Iver's 2008 masterpiece For Emma, Forever Ago. Word is that Justin Vernon, aka Bon Iver, is currently working on a follow up to For Emma, Forever Ago in between summer gigs(sadly none of them happen to be in Phoenix), but in the meantime Vernon's side project, Volcano Choir, is set to release thier debut LP this September.
Volcano Choir is a collaboration of Wisconsin artists Justin Vernon and the band Collections of Colonies of Bees. I haven't heard any tracks from the forthcoming LP but from what I've read it sounds as if this will be something completely different from Vernon's previous work. Regardless, I can pretty much bet this will be something worth checking out when the album comes out on September 22nd via Jagjaguwar.
