Content to leave the Bon Iver behemoth on ice for the foreseeable future, Best New Artist Grammy winner Justin Vernon has of late turned his focus to two side projects. While his dirty boogie blues-rock trio the Shouting Matches bears little resemblance to the sounds that made him famous, there's more of Bon Iver's fragile beauty coursing through the veins of Repave, the sophomore album from Volcano Choir, his sextet side-band. While VC's debut was a hook-less largely instrumental musical journey, Repave retains the gentle spirit and exploratory bent of its predecessor and moves it in a far more immediately melodic direction. With Mark Mallman. 18+.
