To cap of their lovely US tour together this month and celebrate the season, S. Carey and Dead Oceans’ White Hinterland worked up this great improved version of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” They just passed it along to us. And truly, it’s just the perfect thing to send us off on our week-long winter break. Stand-up bass and mouth trombones from the S. Carey crew lay down a nice, loose jazz foundation for White Hinterlander Casey Dienel’s lilting croon. Good year, gang.
As the YT post narrates the inviting scene….
Though there was no hot chocolate simmering on the stove and no fireside chatter floating about, the room felt just as cozy as an Eau Claire cabin in the winter, as S. Carey played a special show for us all. As the evening progressed, wine started to flow a bit more, the room became livelier, and the band started to pick up the pace. It ended up being quite the party, capped off with album highlight, “In The Dirt.”
Shots from the video and December tour dates, post-jump! Also thought I should mention your last chance to take advantage of Amazon’s November digital deal: mp3 format of All We Grow is available for $5!
S. Carey’s Daytrotter Session has just been posted here! Sean, Nick, Zach and Jeremy stopped by the new Austin DT back in September during the Tallest Man on Earth tour. We heard the sound engineer cut his hand when opening up the studio- yikes!! Thanks for taking one home for the team, Matt.
Carey sings on the album’s opening track, “If I could run my fingers through your hair/If you could run along the shore and air/I would keep all my mornings clear/Move all your bees to here,” and hell man, that’s some dangerous shit to be wanting.
Right inside those words, we feel the scale tipping a little and we feel that while some of sweet-sounding and dewy, but sunburned moments have known some sadness, there’s no way they’ve seen it all yet.
S. Carey will be on tour this Winter warming your hearts one stop at a time!

Amidst the chaos of CMJ, S. Carey brought some peace and serenity to trekking festival-goers. Sean and his band also provided a “near-vitriolic drum-heavy freakout” on “Mothers”- this breakdown is unforgettable for anyone whose seen ‘em live.
