S. Carey recently contributed to a new book about Talk Talk. Including handwritten lyrics and never-seen-before photos, Spirt of Talk Talk delves into the band’s expansive collection of album art and music. A good portion of the book is dedicated to those inspired by the band in some way. Carey is no stranger when it comes to Talk Talk; you can see their influence laced through his debut album, All We Grow, as well as his much talked about cover of “I Believe in You” during shows with Bon Iver. Preview the book HERE.
Sean Carey has been mighty busy touring every which way with Bon Iver, but he’s taking a pause to play a set at this year’s FRZN Fest in Madison, WI. Peter Wolf Crier will also be playing the festival, coming off the heels of some heavy touring toward the end of 2011 and the release of their last album, Garden of Arms. Catch both of these wonderful artists and more at the festival on Sat, Jan 14. They’ll be playing at 8pm at the High Noon Saloon (701 E. Washington Ave. Madison, WI). The show is only $12 (or $15-20 if you want to stick around for both nights of the festival).
Kathleen Edwards album Voyageur, the much anticipated follow-up to 2008′s Asking for Flowers, is set for release January 17. In addition to the fact that the album is being co-produced by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, we were thrilled to find out that a number of our other artists are appearing on it as well.
Listeners can look forward to musical stylings from Sean Carey (S. Carey, Bon Iver), Brian Moen (Peter Wolf Crier) and Vernon, who also contributed backing vocals, guitar, piano, organ, bass, banjo and xylophone.
While the rest of America was at BBQ’s and pool parties this weekend, the lucky folks at Sasquatch Music Festival were hanging with some of Minneapolis’ finest. S. Carey and Gayngs both played at the festival and NPR was there to document their sets. Stream the concerts below.
