ALBUM RELEASE // S. Carey ‘Range of Light’ Out Now Worldwide, Records Solo Session for The Current, Expands North American + European Tour

It has been over 3 years since since we released S. Carey‘s All We Grow and today his new album Range of Light is out worldwide. The new album was recorded at friend and Bon Iver band mate Justin Vernon‘s April Base Studios in Wisconsin. On the collaborations from Vernon and Sean’s live band, Sean said “I just wanted to include them because these guys are my brothers…some of my best friends.”

Sean stopped by The Current and recorded a piano-only solo session and discussed his new album. Watch him perform “Fire-Scene”, “Alpenglow”, and also “In the Stream” from his last album All We Grow. Stream the audio from The Current and watch S. Carey‘s performance of “Alpenglow” above.

Range of Light is available now via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.

Critics praise the new album:

“An indie-folk pastorale full of keen musical detail, never more striking than on ‘Crown The Pines’, with its post-minimalist rhythmic scaffolding”

- The New York Times

“It’s crisper and glistens with ambient atmosphere and mellow beats.”

- NME

“Range of Light continues to showcase the Wisconsin native’s singer-songwriter prowess.”

- AV Club

LOVE LOVE LOVE FOR FOXYGEN

“It’s one thing to give your band and your album a silly name, and to play dress-up with rock history while tweaking the formula. It’s another thing entirely to mean it; the more time you spend with Ambassadors, the more clearly that commitment and joy comes through.”PITCHFORK, named BEST NEW MUSIC

“Foxygen’s second album is a cheerful retro orgy in which the Stones get down with the Velvets, while Marc Bolan lies down with Prince (Oh Yeah), with the Cramps, looking on.” THE GUARDIAN

“Foxygen wins.”PASTE

“Triumphantly filtering the hallucinogenic sensibilities of yesteryear through the ADD tendencies of today.” - BUST

“It’s as stylistically diverse, maddening and confident as the Take The Kids Off Broadway EP, yet feels ready to enter the primetime — a band confident that their set of skills will be accepted, or at least tolerated.”Aquarium Drunkard

“With Foxygen, who needs acid?”MOJO
