When Justin Vernon wanted to let his extremely successful and above all highly respected project Bon Iver rest for a while after the second, self-titled album, this caused astonishment. Parallel to this, the American had recorded an album with the band Collections Of Colonies Of Bees under the project name Volcano Choir, which seemed to be torn up and not very inspired. No wonder, since they had only passed song fragments back and forth and had not worked them out properly. And yet: On a joint tour Vernon's enthusiasm was so great that he wanted to make Volcano Choir his priority. For "Repave" they now worked as a "real" band, met, developed songs and recorded them. And so the record sounds much more elaborate than the debut. Basically, it is a third Bon Iver record that develops the ambitious project in a more experimental direction - thanks to the ...Bees. The not undisputed falsetto singing is still overrepresented, but a lot has happened around it, so that even people who had their difficulties with Bon Iver so far can access it.
