S. Carey

S. Carey(Sean) S. Carey, bandmate of Justin Vernon in Bon Iver, has a solo career too. His second compilation of songs, the EP ‘Hoyas‘ was released last month at Jagjaguwar.

His music sounds very gentle, it radiates calmness, and indeed his vocals are super smooth, almost sedated. Despite all this, the opening track turns out to be an epic song in its quiet, low-key way. A big accomplishment in my opinion.

It’s just too bad that on the rest of the EP he abuses his voice with autotune and other unnecessary treatments, which makes me care much less about the other tracks. So, I’ll consider this great song, ‘Two Angles’ a single, and forget about ‘Hoyas’.
