S. Carey

Bon Iver fans: you will like S. Carey, who just so happens to be the drummer for that group. Carey is releasing his first solo album, All We Grow, this coming Tuesday. At first, Carey merely seems to be mining the stripped down instrumental/multitracked vocal formula Justin Vernon perfected on For Emma, Forever Ago, but pretty soon he expands his sound into Sigur Ros layers of stomping percussion, fluttering woodwinds, and echoing pianos. One of the most surprising releases of the year.

Stream All We Grow here. By the way, S. Carey is embarking on what should be an excellent tour with Swedish troubadour The Tallest Man on Earth (coming to the Somerville Theatre October 1st!). More dates here.
