‘Island Intervals’ Death Vessel Collaborates With Jónsi


Along with today’s release of the new Death Vessel album Island Intervals (Sub Pop) comes this official video for the song ‘Mercury Dime’ directed by Peter Glantz and shot in glorious color at the Columbus Theatre.

Apparently Joel Thibodeau’s extraordinary vocals had been noticed by kindred über-soprano Jónsi who suggested they work together. From Sub Pop;

Joel’s is a voice that demands its own sonic and lyrical world, and with Island Intervals, his third record as Death Vessel (and second for Sub Pop), we’re treated to the sound of him finding a rich and strange new home among new friends in Iceland who probably saw him as a long-lost relative. For his first album since 2008’s acclaimed Nothing Is Precious Enough for Us, Joel traveled to Reykjavik on an invitation from Sigur Ros singer Jónsi and producer Alex Somers, where they spent three months together conjuring an album that’s both a song cycle and a window into a mysterious and singular landscape.

What Cheer Vintage at Thayer and Angell has the vinyl for sale — what Sub Pop calls their ‘loser’ edition — which is the most gorgeous luna moth green and comes with a patch and stickers and a poster. And . . .there is a live in-store scheduled for 6pm on Saturday, March 1st. And . . . What Cheer proprietor, and ‘Mericans frontman, Chris Daltry will be opening for Death Vessel in March at the Columbus with his former band Purple Ivy Shadows.
