WATCH // S. Carey Shares “Fire-scene” Video Via FILTER Premiere, Announces New EU Tour Dates



Via FILTER Premiere, S. Carey shares the first video from his new full length album Range of Light out April 1st, 2014 (March 31 in UK).

Filmed mostly in and around Spokane, Washington, the video for “Fire-scene” by director Joe Baughman looks to further intoxicate the mind with the intended imagery already created by S. Carey in the song. We see virtually untouched snow covered landscapes and sprawling mountains, the hustle of workers in the industrial backdrop of Spokane, and more to compliment S. Carey’s ethereal music. Watch the video above our on our YouTube channel here.

Some thoughts on the video from the director:

“Working with S. Carey to conceptualize how “Fire-scene” would look as a visible medium was one of the least difficult things I’ve done. The carefully crafted song is, with audio alone, full of magnificent images. My task was to take the images that were right in front of me and transfer them into something anybody with sight could view.

The most important aspect of this video is the location: Eastern Washington, specifically Spokane, WA and its surrounding area. I also filmed some of it in Indiana (where I’m from).

Even though there were innumerable possibilities at the editing table, it seemed to piece itself together very nicely. The video, without spoiling the freedom of interpretation, has so many natural juxtapositions of tone, color, shape, and space that I was easily able to make it suggest what I wanted it to suggest and more. The beauty of a song and video like “Fire-scene” is that the interpretations are endless and heavily reliant upon the viewer’s own thoughts and experience, thus exceeding the suggestions of the musician and the director”

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.

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.
