Cigliak announced today that Covered by Sara Siskind will be released July 16th. Chigliak is a record label personally curated by Justin Veron (of Bon Iver and Volcano Choir) and releases albums that were recorded, but never commercially put out for an official release. In a statement from the label’s website, “We all have that band that changed our lives, that you feel like not nearly enough people have heard. This is Chigliak’s modus operandi; be changed and enjoy”.
Good afternoon! Justin Vernon has teamed up with Phil Cook and Peter Wolf Crier’s Brian Moen for a new project called The Shouting Matches. NPR is streaming the group’s debut album in full; head HERE to stream Grownass Man. The album is officially out tomorrow!
“It’s the work of a guy who loves playing music — who’s drawn influence from Talk Talk and Bruce Hornsby and many points in between — and saw an opportunity to have a blast on the side with friends he’s joined on stage whenever possible.” – Stephen Thompson
You can see The Shouting Matches live at Coachella this weekend, as well as next!
We could not be happier to share the wonderful news that Bon Iver has gone gold! The story goes a little something like this….2008 saw the release of Bon Iver’s debut album For Emma, Forever Ago. Cue lots of touring. Jump to the summer of 2011 and a brand new record by the name of Bon Iver, Bon Iver. Cue more touring, festivals, a Grammy or two, late night television performances – you get the gist. Arrive at January 2013, more specifically the week of January 13-19 when BOTH OF BON IVER’s full-length albums crossed the 500,000 threshold and went GOLD (as in RIAA-certified Gold records in the United States). Please join us in congratulating Justin Vernon and the Bon Iver family on this huge accomplishment!
To sum up how we’re feeling at Jagjaguwar today…
A few weeks ago we shared Bon Iver’s new “Beth/Rest” video. At first glance, it’s a strange sight, following people made of light through their home that looks a great deal like an Ewok village. Today, we’re provided a special, behind-the-scenes look at the video and how it all came together. Justin Vernon tells us where his treatment originated and then takes us into the woods behind April Base for the set build. Many people had a hand in creating the video and we can now find out just how they made it happen. Watch above!
