First, we have to tackle the obvious. If you follow Vernon’s side projects then you probably already know about Volcano Choir. They started as an obscure side project for Vernon and their first album “Unmap” envoked a similar pseudo-folk soundscape that was a bit more along the lines of something The Books would put out. It featured limited instrumentation and vocals, looped and sampled with other random sounds. Their latest album, "Repave," has allowed an almost seamless transition for the style that Vernon channeled for Bon Iver. In my opinion, "Repave" is Bon Iver’s third full length release, just under a different name.
