Volcano Choir - Unmap glitched out folk style

Last year I downloaded a Bon Iver EP named "Blood Bank." The album was pretty generic for Bon Iver but thrown into the end was a tripped out melodic track called "Woods". Little did I know but that would be the start of something new for Bon Iver.

Bon Iver "Woods"

He's back in 2009 with a new group called Volcano Choir. The group is made of members of Collection of Colonies of Bees and Justin Vernon. That actual track is redone and is now called "Still." Bon Iver still brings his unique indie folk style but this album is a real departure with modulated voices, repetitive looping acoustic guitars, haunting layered voices sampled over and over. This album is a must for a surround sound stereo or a good pair of headphones. If you feel like checking out forty minutes with some inventive triped out glitch folk, then "Unmap" is the album for you. Look for it when it is released in America on September 22nd.
