Description:
≈   Volcano Choir is Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon’s project with the members of the Wisconsin post-rock band Collections of Colonies of Bees, and earlier this year, they got together, for the second time, to make an album of hazy, pastoral, near-ambient music. The new album Repave is their first record since 2009's Unmap.
≈   Repave brings Volcano Choir into sharp focus. 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. It’s the sound of the creative process as it evolves and ultimately explodes, the seamless structuring of electronic and acoustic/amplified instruments, multi-threaded with the timbre and technology of the human voice as it enters and exits the equation. 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.
≈   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’. 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. 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. With each verse you can sense that somebody somewhere could be listening to this music and getting stronger, feeling better. A soupcon of heart and soul.
≈   Repave cements the idea of Volcano Choir that started with Unmap. It takes that musical playground and houses it in the context of a specific sound. Of a unified band. ≈   Repaved and filling that  “hole in your heart.”

Artist Biography by Margaret Reges
≈    In 2005, long before Justin Vernon started making recordings under the name of Bon Iver — and before his previous band, DeYarmond Edison, had even split up — he collaborated with Collections of Colonies of Bees' Jon Mueller, Chris Rosenau, Jim Schoenecker, Daniel Spack, and Thomas Wincek on a side project called Volcano Choir. The group's first album, Unmap, was recorded in Vernon's studio in late 2008. The buzz surrounding this release was palpable, given that it was essentially arriving on the heels of Bon Iver's 2008 debut, For Emma, Forever Ago, an album that had enjoyed considerable popularity among indie crowds that year. Unmap was released on Jagjaguwar Records in the fall of 2009. Following the release of their debut, Justin Vernon returned to Bon Iver for their second album, while Thomas Wincek left Collections of Colonies of Bees and conceived instrumental outfit All Tiny Creatures. In a long process — similar to the creation of Unmap — the members traded ideas in writing sessions between November 2010 and March 2013 for their second record, Reprave, which was due in 2013.

COLLECTIONS OF COLONIES OF BEES:
Artist Biography by David Serra
≈   Collections of Colonies of Bees was started as a side project for Chris Rosenau and Jon Mueller, both of the post-rock group Pele. They mixed acoustic instruments with electronic sounds and released their self-titled debut on U.K.'s The Rosewood Union label. Collections of Colonies of Bees drew attention for their first LP and found a home in the U.S. label Crouton, which released Rance, fa.ce (a, and the Meyou EP. Pillowscars Records, a Swedish label, released their Stuck EP in 2003. Collections of Colonies of Bees decided to add two new members for their Customer release — computer and synth operators Jon Minor (also of Pele) and Jim Schoenecker, who had worked with Minor on electronic projects in the past. Polyvinyl Records released Customer in October of 2004. The follow-up full-length Giving arrived in 2011, marking the departure of Mueller from the project.
