I have a story for you…


I was standing at work one day last week (as this has happened a couple times over the last couple of weeks) when a song came on.  It was fairly new to my ears but the moment I heard it, I assumed it was Bon Iver…new Bon Iver at that which just made me so excited.


But last week was different, I felt like I was missing something and I needed the confirmation that it was Bon Iver so I ran back to the screen that shows what’s playing.  What does it say?


Volcano Choir – “Comrade”


what?!  I came back up front all confused.  I turned to one of my coworkers and called her out to her the song.  I asked if she thought it sounded like Bon Iver, she replied “yes.” I asked if she heard of Volcano Choir to which she replied “no.”  My mind was blown that someone and something could sound so close to a band that I felt like I knew so well.


Well I was right on track but missing one significant piece of information.  Justin Vernon (aka the voice behind Bon Iver) started a side project, also known as Volcano Choir.  My ears did not deceive me, but there is a moral to every story – so, what’s mine?



I don’t know everything, but what I do know is this song is worth every minute.


Tell me a story!

What are you listening to this weekend?

    still listening to Vampire Weekend and Dawes and waiting for Arcade Fire’s new one. Bon Iver or Volcano Choir or whatever will not be on my list… unless I am having issues falling asleep. 🙂
