S. Carey Live Performance And Interview With NPR!

They say all good things must come to an end, and that’s just what had to happen with the S. Carey and Tallest Man on Earth fall tour this Monday in our nation’s capital.

Luckily, when All Songs Considered captures that final farewell, you can remember it forever. NPR not only recorded the 9:30 Club concert in its entirety, but Bob Boilen also conducted a wonderful interview with Sean and Kristian.

Click here to listen to and download the concert and interview. The intimacy and beautifully constructed intricacy of All We Grow really shines on this recording.

S. Carey had an amazing band on tour with him- Nick Ball, Jeremy Boettcher, Zach Hanson (not that one) and Mike Noyce (when he wasn’t rocking the dino hoodie with GAYNGS).

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to the shows these past four weeks. So long, farewell and see you soon!

PS: All Songs also has a great photo stream on Flickr of the show here.

Catch a Glimpse of S. Carey’s Record Release Show Before the Band Embarks on Tour With The Tallest Man on Earth

Sean Carey’s record release show at Minneapolis’ Southern Theater marked his inaugural performance as S. Carey, but you wouldn’t have guessed it. Accompanied by Jeremy Boettcher, Ben Lester, Nick Ball and special guest Mike Noyce, Sean played All We Grow in its entirety and didn’t miss a beat.


“Mothers” & “Action” (live) S. Carey from Sean Carey on Vimeo.

As the Twin Cities Daily Planet live review put it, “The band played the album from start to finish, with tight, sometimes indiscernible transitions between songs as members occasionally switched out instruments. It reminded me of Spoon’s set at First Avenue earlier this year: each moment was planned ahead of time, every note was played with confidence, and all performers on stage were professionals through-and-through.”

But this is only the beginning!  The Tallest Man on Earth tour with S. Carey as the opener begins tomorrow in Vancouver. Check out all the tour dates, after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
