22, A Million is the third studio album by American indie folk band Bon Iver, released on September 30, 2016. The album was premiered at Justin Vernon's Eaux Claires Music Festival.
""Rather than make a traditional covers record, I thought it would be much more fun to create a new type of project in which artists communicated with each other and swapped a song for a song, i.e. you do one of mine and I'll do one of yours, hence the title - Scratch My Back - And I'll Scratch Yours." Peter Gabriel
A good concert is like a journey. When it starts you might not know what episodes await you, but in your heart you can feel which direction it will take you in. The Miramode Orchestra offers just this type of enriching, exhilarating experience. Although they meander between coordinates including jazz, electronica and groove, the seven musicians can never be tied down to a single musical location. The sound created by a four-man rhythm section and three horn players is always flavoured by a certain ambition, but never fails to let souls fly and get bodies sweating!
Colin Stetson, the sax player best known for showing off his circular breathing techniques on stage with Arcade Fire and Bon Iver, has announced his next solo effort, entitled All This I Do For Glory. According to the press release, the album examines concepts of the afterlife, explores ambition and legacy and is the first half of a doomed love story in the model of Greek tragedies. Ambitious, then. All This I Do For Glory is Stetson’s first solo album since 2013’s acclaimed To See More Light and supposedly contains more percussive elements influenced by Aphex Twin and Autechre.
