Concert Footage of Volcano Choir Performing “Island, IS” in Tokyo

Pardon my French, but Good Lord! This is incredible. Contrarede filmed the band’s concert (specifically “Island, IS) at O-West.  Justin Vernon tweeted “dudes! were playing! it’s goin good!” at us yesterday, and like, yeah, dude, that is an understatement.

It looks like the boys are having a fun time in Japan. Justin has been posting photos from the tour on the blogtower.

Volcano Choir Comes To Life – Rehearses in Eau Claire for Japan Tour

Volcano Choir – “Still” from Volcano Choir on Vimeo.


Some of the questions raised when we announced the existence of Volcano Choir were “When are they going to tour?” and “How will they re-create this live?” The answers to those are 1) They will tour only in Japan, of course, and 2) With lots of practice. We received two videos of Volcano Choir rehearsal, and I’ll be damned if I don’t have a passport. The evolution of “Still” is particularly great.

For those of you who aren’t in Japan, don’t cry! Just enjoy the videos we have, and try not to drown your sorrows in Four Lokos this weekend. If you DO live in Japan, go buy these men your finest Japanese beverages.

New Music From Volcano Choir Crew- Tiny Creatures Featuring Justin Vernon on “An Iris”

All-Tiny-Creatures-PR-2010

What do Thomas Winceck and Kanye West have in common? They both recruited our man Justin Vernon on a recent track of theirs!

Wincek (Collections Of Colonies Of Bees, Volcano Choir) is leading the path for his new project, All Tiny Creatures.  You can catch the band’s first song, “An Iris”(Feat. Justin Vernon) over at Stereogum.  They also featured a mixtape with a handful of other tunes off their upcoming debut, Harbors.

Getting ready for LOST with Justin Vernon, Josh Wells and the Jagjaguwar crew

There might be some pre-conceived notions about what constitutes water cooler conversation at an indie label, but I have to tell you that it’s basically the same old shit.  There’s enough fantasy baseball and fantasy football to keep my eyes rolling for most of the year, but I am happy to report that the majority of my co-workers love all the same television programming that I do.
