As discussed, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and the guys from Collections of Colonies of Bees are releasing their new Volcano Choir album, Repave, on September 3 via Jagjaguwar. After releasing one of its tracks, "Byegone," they've now let another track loose, titled "Comrade." Like "Byegone" (and the rest of the album), the new song sees Justin not straying too far from Bon Iver, Bon Iver mode, making for a nice annex of material to that album. Check it out below.
Opening that show (and other dates on the tour) is Sylvan Esso, the new project of Mountain Man's Amelia Meath and Megafaun's Nick Sanborn. Their new 12", Hey Mami" // "Play It Right," is out now, and can be streamed below. Recommended for fans of another Justin Vernon-approved project, Polica, who have a similar knack for blending folk and electronic music.
All dates are listed, along with all song streams, below...
