There has been a fair share of buzz around Volcano Choir's second album Repave the last month and without surprise, most of the posts simply stress on one name - Justin Vernon. The only thing I wouldn't like to happen, however, is that this talented band to always be in the shadow of his other project Bon Iver, because personally, I am not even sure which one I like more.

"Comrade" is the second track which really exploded among the Internet community and... well, there's a good reason. Initially I thought the song would be acoustically-driven, but once the electronics kick-in, the whole calmness kind of disappears with the blink of an eye. I guess that whole dynamics is the charm of it. The one thing which sounds kinda off are the auto-tuned vocals at the end. They puzzle me. A bit.
