Hear a new song by Bon Iver written for Silver Lake Chorus; see him in Philly on 9/16

Indie-folk hero Justin Vernon of Bon Iver has written a slew of original songs for L.A.-based Silver Lake Chorus to be featured on their forthcoming EP, Wreckage, due out September 18th. Below, stream one of those songs, “From The Snow Tipped Hills.” The song presents a stunning display of sounds forming painterly natural images, presented in a style suggestive of traditional 19th century choral music, all delicately wrought through human voices alone.  The 25-member group’s EP is produced by Ben Lee and also includes original songs written by A.C. Newman of The New Pornographers. (Don’t miss Bon Iver in Philly at the Mann Center on Sunday, September 16th. Tickets and information are available here).
