Overview

Supermoon

On his second EP and fourth solo release, Wisconsin's S. Carey continues to hike down the nature trail of deeply pastoral indie chamber-folk. With influences that range from composer Steve Reich to naturalist John Muir, his music generally comes across as a sort of soothing balm that marries rustic imagery with an almost classical sophistication. Containing gentle reimaginings of four songs from his first two LPs (2010's All We Grow and 2014's Range of Light) along with the newly composed title track and a cover of Radiohead's "Bullet Proof… I Wish I Was," the understated Supermoon rarely raises itself above a whisper. Much of the appeal of Carey's first two albums is in their subtle, multi-layered orchestral arrangements that quietly explode with guitars, horns, strings, and clever, skittering percussion parts to frame his austere melodies. On Supermoon, already tranquil songs like "Fire - Scene" and "In the Stream" get downplayed even further with decidedly sparse renditions that pair strings and solo piano with Carey's calm, easy vocals. Once again taking his inspiration from the natural world, the EP was recorded in August 2014 during a phenomenon known as a perigee-syzygy, or Supermoon.
