Thomas Wincek of Collections of Colonies of Bees started a new band balled All Tiny Creatures, and their debut album called Harbors is expected later this year. If you recall, last year, Wincek and the rest of Collections of Colonies of Bees worked with Bon Iver leader Justin Vernon to become Volcano Choir. And now, Wincek has apparently called up Justin Vernon and asked him to led his legendary voice for Harbors' lead single, "Iris".
It seems like everyone is after Justin Vernon's unique set of pipes. Even Kanye West wanted a piece of him — just last week Vernon told Pitchfork that he recorded "at least 10" vocal tracks for West's forthcoming LP. As unbelievably exciting/shocking as that is, allow me to draw your attention back to All Tiny Creature's "Iris", because frankly, it deserves it. It doesn't command it though; it's all too easy to allow "Iris" bleed into the background. It doesn't demand your attention, but asks for it very nicely. Succumb and you'll find a gorgeous song that will beg for the repeat button, and maybe a good e-book. Listen and/or download below:
