_nliketheletter Cardinal directions never felt more sacred than when hearing these riffs. The rustle of decades worth of sagebrush and wheatfields leading lines towards the future. Favorite track: Have You Stopped to Notice.

Lori Koslosky Don’t want to say too much 😜. Just listen, your ears will thank you, it’s like a lavender pillow for your heart to rest for a minute (as long as you aren’t allergic to lavender-in that case it’s not like lavender but more like a hypoallergenic pillow for your heart to rest upon for a minute.). Seriously, thank you Mr. S. Carey.

about

'Hundred Acres' finds Carey at his most confident, mature, and grounded, writing the strongest songs of his career. At its core, the album is a poetic treatise on what is truly necessary in life, a surprisingly utilitarian art project that underscores the power of enduring. Carey challenges himself and the listener to strive for a near-utopian ideal of returning to a simpler way of life, and loving those around you, to heal personal wounds.

Carey employed a smaller, more focused scale of instrumentation on 'Hundred Acres', centered around guitar, synths, pedal steel, strings, drums and percussion, with his soothing vocals front and center -- more distinct than ever. In effect, the album’s production echoes its underlying message: the beauty in simplicity. Relying on more traditional song structures instead of the Steve Reich-ian repetitions of his past work, a new balance is struck that creates something unique. The result is a collection of poetic yet clear-eyed songs that both stand brightly on their own and tightly weave together to create a powerful album.

about

S. Carey Eau Claire, Wisconsin

S. Carey’s chosen musical expression is a hugely beatific, restorative panorama of beauty - perfect given how landscape and the wonder of nature inspire much of Carey’s imagery. Like a weathered mountain range changing shadow form and color, or the ebb and flow of a river’s current, his music is simultaneously restful and rhythmic, complex and simple, and always evolving. ... more
