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

Dinosaur Jr. Featured on Ghettoblaster Cover #33, Perform Live In-Studio at 89.3 The Current

Here’s to stating the obvious >>> Dinosaur Jr. are on the most recent cover of Ghettoblaster. J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph are Keeping It Together for issue #33. Make sure to pick up your copy and frame it.

After playing at Minneapolis’s Cabooze last night, Dinosaur Jr. got over to 89.3 The Current for a live in-studio performance bright and early this morning. Playing songs from the new record, I Bet On Sky, they gave everyone a heavy serving of rock’n’roll for breakfast. Woke up too late to listen in real time? Stream the performance below!

4/20 – The High Holy GAYNGS Day

4/20 is here! The holiest of holidays for GAYNGS. Today marks the first day of pre-orders for Relayted.

The CD and LP are really impressive – I took a picture of the LP here (same as the cd only…LP sized).  The angle is a little weird because I didn’t want the internet to see my reflection in the GOLD FOIL, but trust me, shit is gold.  The second is the magical watercolor gatefold – it’s like a Where’s Waldo of your favorite GAYNGS members!
