I hate the cult of personality. It’s the reason that Justin Vernon has so much appeal to me. Anyone that can create such sincere beauty in everything he touches deserves respect; it’s not just gifted to him through buzz.
And that brings us to “Comrade” by Volcano Choir. Docile tones and a golden background break down to triplet arpeggios and ardent pleas in a song whose journey is as deep as Vernon’s body of work.
Enjoy and happy Wednesday. Via Pitchfork
