ALBUM ANNOUNCE // S. Carey ‘Range of Light’ Out April 1st, Listen To “Fire-Scene” Now Via Stereogum




It has been over 3 years since since S. Carey‘s All We Grow was released on Jagjaguwar, and today we announce his new full length album Range of Light will be out April 1st, 2014 (March 31 in UK). The new album, previewed in Spin last week, is his first recorded in a studio, at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios in Wisconsin, and brings collaboration from Vernon and Sean’s live band saying “I just wanted to include them because these guys are my brothers…some of my best friends.”

The album’s title originally comes from the naturalist John Muir, who founded the environmental organization the Sierra Club and took great care with and had a great appreciation for the California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. On the title and thought process of the album, Carey writes,

“The ‘Range of Light,’ to me, is the range of my own happiness and the range in anyone’s happiness, sadness…it became a very California-inspired record for me. California and Arizona, specifically, because when I was a kid, my parents got divorced, and my dad lived in Arizona. Every summer we would go visit him and explore — basically road-trip around and camp and fish and hike, and do all that stuff in Arizona and in California, because we had a bunch of cousins and aunts and uncles that lived there. Some of the songs are about those memories, which again goes back to the ‘Range of Light.”

Preview the new album by hearing the new track “Fire-Scene” [via Stereogum premiere this morning] above or on our Soundcloud / YouTube pages.

Range of Light is now available for pre-order via iTunes, and comes with an instant-grat download of “Fire-scene.” A pre-order with instant-grat is also available through SC Distribution, in addition to a Range of Light deluxe package, which includes limited-edition marble vinyl and a limited-edition “Fire-scene” 7″, featuring exclusive b-side “Chrysalis.” Others can also find the new album available via Amazon and your local record store.

WATCH // Angel Olsen Shares New “Forgiven/Forgotten” Video, New Album Out 2/18/14

Just a few weeks ago we announced Angel Olsen‘s new album Burn Your Fire for No Witness. We also shared new song “Forgiven/Forgotten” which garnered Pitchfork‘s “Best New Track” status and had Fader saying Angel “has gone ahead and plugged in, with a full rock band sound that seems like it’s rearing to overwhelm everything in its path”.

Today we are excited to premiere the first video from the new album for the track “Forgiven/Forgotten”. Directed by longtime Angel collaborator, Zia Anger, and shot on 16mm, the visual shows Angel in enchanted suburbia with a mate who may no longer be in the picture, literally. Watch the video above or on YouTube/Vevo.

ALBUM RELEASE // Moonface ‘Julia with Blue Jeans On’ Out Today, Releases Video for “Barbarian”

Spencer Krug‘s latest album as Moonface, Julia with Blue Jeans On is out today. For Moonface‘s newest, Krug has stripped down his sound to just a piano and his voice, leaving the effects, overdubs, and electronic elements out. The new album, Julia with Blue Jeans On, is Krug’s self-described love record and displays an angle of Spencer’s music not heard before.

Also premiering today, see a new video by Spencer for the song “Barbarian”, which incorporates camcorder footage from the 1980′s of three children with some pretty sweet moves (see Spencer far right). Watch the video above or here on YouTube.

Julia with Blue Jeans On is available now from Amazon, iTunes, Secretly Canadian Distribution, your local record store, and on Paper Bag Records in Canada.
