Editorial Reviews

Repave comes four years after the first Volcano Choir album, Unmap, provided a glimpse into the collaborative mindset between a singer and a band that inspired him. Ideas were minted, written at a distance and realized in the studio; edges sanded back and flaps tucked in, the craftsmanship of the endeavor bearing evidence of the craft itself, and the technology used to assemble it.

Customer Reviews

Every song is good in its own right.
Ken McInerney
Not to mention this album is so relaxing and perfect music to listen to while studying/working.
Grace
Deep layers of interesting instrumentation and the unmistakable vocals of Justin Vernon.

I liked Unmap but only a few songs stuck with me... not so with Repave. If you did not like Volcano Choir's previous album, Unmap, don't worry, this is a solid evolution and more instantly listenable. Having listened 5 or 6 times through, it also maintains great replay value. Deep layers of interesting instrumentation and the unmistakable vocals of Justin Vernon. Vocally, it's more similar to what you've heard with Bon Iver but it's not all of that great falsetto. Tracks like Acetate display the other side of Vernon's vocal range in ways you haven't heard with Bon Iver. Every song on this album has something to offer. From great riffs on Comrade to epic sonic buildup of Almanac. I love the idea of established musicians creating a side project where they don't have to worry about meeting expectations or any sort of status quo. It doesn't feel like a side project anymore, but it's own thing. You can tell they're still experimenting with Repave, but it's almost like they got a lot better at experimenting. No vocal effect, instrument, nor song structure is off limits and the result is excellent.

There is so much to love about this album. Fans of Bon Iver's self-titled 2011 Bon Iver will adore it; this one feels like legend as well. It is art: precise and passionate, haunting and ambitious. The sad monologue at the end of Alaskans is gorgeous; the scope and ambition of Byegone and Comrade is transcendent. These songs were written and composed with utmost care -- deliberate, surgical. "Take note, there's still a whole in your heart." This music is brilliant; highly recommended.

I could not imagine I'd ever see Justin Vernon putting his voice in some other project than Bon Iver. He has finally made it, and how he did! His exceptional voice suits perfectly with this new style, not so far from Bon Iver's though, but enough different to make you feel Justin Vernon's voice in a way you've never listened.
Volcano Choir becomes bigger with their second album, and clearly shows that they are not just "the secondary band of Justin Vernon".
Must listen!

2nd release from Wisconsin band--gently soaring, sophisticated indie pop songs with acoustic
and orchestral elements that float around emotive vocals in a progressive, subtly psychedelic,
epic neo-folk atmosphere. The songs have a haunted, magnificent sort of beauty that rings with
an honest, natural grandeur and a quiet intensity. The band features Justin Vernon (Bon Iver)
and members of Pele, the Collections of Colonies of Bees, All Tiny Creatures. Sometimes
recalls the sounds of Grizzly Bear, the Besnard Lakes, Arcade Fire, Peter Gabriel.

If the name Bon Iver conjures up a musical image of high falsetto over gentile melancholy then "Repave" the new album by Volcano Choir will come as a surprise. This band are a mix of both the songwriting skills of Justin Vernon and members of the indie folk outfit Collections of Colonies of Bees and now sound less like a side project and more of a fully formed rock unit. The album has Vernon trading crunching riffs and singing in deep tones but for those of you who loved the Bon Iver project and particularly his more expansive second album there is nothing on "Repave" which will grate or irritate. Indeed there are some mighty good songs contained therein and with the "Bon Iver" project essentially on hold or even drawing to a close this is a very worthy new direction and a considerable step up from 2009s more experimental "Unmap".

Check out the brilliant opener "Tiderays" builds from a church like organ to gentle acoustics followed by biting guitars giving a firm foundation to its rich choruses. You could of course pick the vocals out of a line up, however it is a deeper timbre that Vernon uses on "Acetate" which is considerably assisted by the massed voices of his colleagues guitarist Chris Rosenau and drummer Jon Mueller where they all declare "But I won't beg for you on acetate/I won't crawl on you to validate". The song "Batpack" is the first single off the album although it is "Alaskans" which steals the show as the albums centre-point. Here Vernon alternates between baritone and his smallest falsetto. The song appears to touch all bases of human emotion not least concluding with a sample of Charles Bukowski reading a poem from a documentary shown on French television.

So....your pretentious a$$hole of a friend tells you that Volcano Choir can give you something You gotta listen, man! You gotta give yourself over to this thing. It's sooooo bad ass. Also, the dude from Bon Iver is in it.
Blah blah blah.
Volcano Choir ain't a game. It's just a collective putting emotion into music. You can come into this thing and get great vibes and a perspective of something coo. You don't know what you're being told. You just won't know.
The point is: Volcano Choir is going to give you these pieces and verses and you have to MAKE something outta this stuff.
You want something served up to you and you wanna tell your pals how damn cool you are...well, maybe this will do it.
BUT
if you just wanna come to an album with nothing but your names and your guesses, you'll find a willing and ready partner who can give you the landscapes, the settings, the world that you can play inside and that you can take into everything.
It's cool.
We're done with the purposes and agendas of our music. We just wanna pack up and follow it out, however far it may go.
