Collections of Colonies of Bees — GIVING

Wisconsin instrumental post-rockers return to old form after their Volcano Choir collaboration with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.

Clocking in at just under half an hour, Milwaukee-based Collections of Colonies of Bees recorded a lyric-less gem in their latest offering, “Giving,” strong enough an effort to challenge the current incumbents Explosions in the Sky as our best post-rock build-up instrumental band.

VOTD: Bon's away

Watch ‘Bon Iver’’s gorgeous-est track, ‘Holocene.’

“I can see for miles, miles, miles,” Justin Vernon coos three different times during “Holocene.” Director Nabil first syncs this line up in the below video with a beautiful wide shot of what seems to be Icelandic landscape. Everything seems infinite in that little moment.

Watch as a bucktoothed kid in a hooded sweater explores the beautiful country outside of his home.
