New Song: S. Carey

You may know S. Carey better as the drummer in Bon Iver. This fact will probably be made apparent within the opening paragraph (or even sentence in this case) in most introductions to S. Carey as an artist. However, don’t think just because he’s winning Grammy’s as a drummer/backing singer that he shouldn’t be winning plaudits for his solo work. Of course, Justin Vernon will cast a long shadow over the solo career of S. Carey, but this is nothing to shy away from, if anything it is a rosette that he should wear with great pride. He should be even prouder of his achievements in music given the quality of this particular solo offering. ‘Two Angles’ is the first song to be taken from his impending EP Hoyas and the song itself is quite stunning. Lo-fi dub electronics lay the foundations of the song, but as the track progresses and becomes more complex, more and more wonderous textures and sounds unfurl. The EP will be released on May 7th courtesy of Jagjaguwar.
