Supermoon EP

February 15, 2017

Description

Recorded primarily during the perigee-syzygy (also known as the super moon) of August 2014, the Supermoon EP from S. Carey is a study in scale, space, and proximity. These songs are a new and closer look into existing works from both S. Carey's renowned full-lengths, 2010's All We Grow and 2014's Range of Light. With Supermoon, Carey has broken these songs down to their essential, acoustic parts with his forever humming vocals laid over top, lilting yet percussive piano, and a subtle swath of harmonic strings. You can hear Carey's breath between words and the pat of his fingers on the keys; you can hear the living room in which his family's baby grand piano sits. These songs are beautiful, intimate and so potently personal. This collection is a stark presentation of S. Carey laid bare, an open invitation for the listener to climb into his world.

Tracks

Fire-scene (alt. version)

The city’s fire

Trapped behind the earth

Digging in your deepest dirt


The reddest hue

Reminds you of you

Clinging love and falling true


On and On

All I want is honesty


Tree has snapped

Sparks are flying everywhere

Cables burnt and lines flare


And when the all in all

Comes falling down

It was just an accident

Something you can’t help


On and On

All I want is honesty

We Fell (alt. version)

The consonance of drone

And love sounds its own

Your arms wrapped around home

All the in-betweens

Lay so blue beside me

We fell

More than skin and bones

No we're not alone

We fell

Like stones

Between

Supermoon
In The Stream (alt. version)

I was folded by ferns

You could return, the earth

All to her

Open mouth

Look up and out

Fall my failures

To the ground

I know

I know

I know

All them

I am wind in the pines

I am a line

You can't define

When the dawn breaks

In my love-lock landscapes

I know

I know

I know

All them

Be in my vision

My gardener

I'll be an architect

On window steam

I'll be in the stream

Be in that canyon

That corridor

I'll be an architect

On window steam

I'll be in the stream

Neverending Fountain (alt. version)

I know my heart better than you may think

It swells but keeps on the bank of a May creek

And when we see it All

And the exit sign


We build our scrape past the moors on Cliff-Keep

The bottom line: out of stone I will seep

We look up: Neverending Fountain

My wings are pure and forever sounding

The sky, my hub, and harken: crowning

Where basins boom and my heart is bounding


And when we see it All

And the exit sign

Where cool creeks collide

Of the true and the tried

I will be home, hawk-eyed


Searching, patient

Searching, patient

Searching, patient

Searching, patient

Bullet Proof..I Wish I Was

Hoyas EP

May 08, 2012

Description

Hoyas by S. Carey is a hospitable statement about love, longing and the celebration of knowing it well. You will find the familiar S. Carey modern classical repetition pushed into the vernacular of electronic music and beat making. This is the warmest electronic music you'll ever meet. The beats swing, stutter and pulse while each instrument retains a heightened awareness of its form and function within the larger family of voices.

Tracks

Two Angles

I spy two lovers

Underneath a portico

They cling in November cold

They never were this bold and sterling

In the fog-lift


The swaying symmetry

Retreat to the falls

Cascading of everything

All to my toes

The beauty of two angles

And then my life untangled


I swear, I swear, I swear


In the cloud-hang

To a grass-blade

To the earth’s tomb

My love is real

Avalanche

No one came to take you there

All the streams on Oberon

Everything you called to her

In your heart I know there’re words

These are not the ones in it

Everything you say you’ll do

I was in the corner room

We cannot to begin to lose

All it was and ever said


Don’t be there against my will

Don’t be there you’re takin’ stares

Don‘t be there for no one


Baby in the corner room

All that I could say to you is nearly ordinary

A map beneath window the sill

All that you could ever kill

All it was on Ever-seas

I need something new

I need solace


Don’t be there against my will

Don’t be there you’re takin’ stares

Don’t be there for no one

All the time

They won’t tell you

About the love and honor

They won’t find

I know stories

About reeling and falling


In that gentle grass


They say stories

About reeling and falling

I know the answers

Reeling and Falling


Use the forest

Midnight gentle grass

In that gentle grass
