Times have been good for Collections Of Colonies Of Bees. The group teamed up with good friend and Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon for 2009’s widely acclaimed Volcano Choir record, Unmap, and its newest album, Giving, has been equally acclaimed. CoCoBees is commonly referred to as a post-rock outfit, but on Giving, the Milwaukee instrumental six-piece sure sounds an awful lot like a rock band. While 2008’s Birds emphasized contemplative melodic meanderings that unfolded over four intricately plotted-out and purposeful movements, Giving draws on the power that CoCoBees conjures live. The group’s telepathic communication as a close-knit ensemble turns it into a solitary instrument on Giving, like fingers closing into a fist.
