Some time ago, I mentioned Volcano Choir, a new side project courtesy of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. The first track from the group’s debut album hit the internet last month, I just wasn’t here to blog about it. It’s called “Island, IS” and as expected, it’s a lot more experimental than the stuff that we’re used to from Vernon.

It’s interesting to hear Vernon’s trademark falsetto vocals over an instrumental loop rather than an acoustic guitar, and while I like “Island, IS”, there’s just too much going on for me. Hopefully the rest of the album will prove more to my taste but for the moment, Bon Iver comes out on top.
