It's not cold out this week, but it soon will be. Wisconsinites understand the true meaning of the bone-chilling brrrrrrrrrr, so who better to warm you this season than Volcano Choir, a band of Wisconsin natives, including Justin Vernon of Bon Iverian fame and members of Collections of Colonies of Bees? The former touring buddies have been collaborating together for some time: a few of the songs on Unmap (September 22) were written as far back as 2005. Lyrics are few and far between, with the emphasis mostly on shimmering ambience. This is an album you can play in the background while you're holed up in the house doing pseudo-constructive things.
