WATCH // S. Carey Shares ‘Supermoon’ EPK Via Outside Magazine, New EP Out Feb. 17, April Dates Added To Living Room Tour

S. Carey debuted the EPK for his upcoming Supermoon EP today via Outside Magazine premiere. The video – gorgeously shot primarily in the Wisconsin wilderness – provides a further window into the musical inspiration that Carey finds in nature and family. The Supermoon EP offers reimagined versions of the Eau Claire-native singer/songwriter and Bon Iver-multi-instrumentalist’s two full-lengths, 2010′s All We Grow and 2014′s Range of Light, alongside the title track new song and a Radiohead cover. Go behind the scenes with a special EPK directed by Dan Huiting you can watch above or on YouTube.

Pre-order the EP via SC Distribution, iTunes, and Amazon.

The Supermoon EP, recorded during August 2014′s perigee-syzygy (a/k/a super moon), is a study in scale, space, and proximity. With the songs pared down to essential, acoustic parts, their beauty, intimacy, and potently personal nature are allowed to shine through in new and distinctive ways. Carey’s gentle, evocative vocals glide atop lilting yet percussive piano and subtle harmonic strings; his breath between words and the pat of his fingers on his family’s baby grand keys have been left audible. Inspired by nature, as with much of his work, and the excitement of on the spot song arrangements for various sessions while on tour, the Supermoon EP was laid to tape with the help of longtime friends and collaborators Zach Hanson (who engineered, mixed, and mastered) and Mike Noyce (who played viola). The EP is captivating and understated, adding a new chapter to the still-unfolding story of Sean Carey as an artist.

Carey has added April dates to his upcoming living room tour, presented by Undertow Music Collective. This series of shows will showcase the stripped-down artistry of the Supermoon EP and begin on February 5th in Des Moines, IA.

WATCH // Lia Ices Shares Video For “Thousand Eyes”, Includes Footage From Bollywood’s ‘Dil Se’, Tour With Phantogram Continues

From Lia-

For me, this scene from Dil Se acts as a visual metaphor for the same sentiments that inspired the song “Thousand Eyes”; We move together against internal and external rhythms, we fly through nature completely entwined with technology and machines (in this video it’s the train). We go on go on go on…”

Lia Ices has shared a new video for her track “Thousand Eyes” from her latest album ‘Ices’. The video, edited by Dougal Henken, pairs the song with a scene from the 1998 Bollywood classic Dil Se (translation: From The Heart). Watch the video above or on Lia’s Youtube Channel. If you’ve yet to see her live, Lia is currently in the midst of a national tour with Phantogram. Full dates and ticket links after the jump.

Pick up the new album now via iTunes, Amazon, Jagjaguwar, and your local record.

- Pitchfork // 8.2

“Are We There offers an artist in full command of her voice and her instrument, a woman who knows exactly what she wants to offer listeners and who isn’t afraid to accompany the barest streaks of sunlight with thousands of clouds.”

- The A.V. Club // A-

“Are We There functions best as the portrait of an artist coming into her own, while hopefully putting some of her demons to rest.”

- Consequence of Sound // A-
