Range of Light by S. Carey

It’s no surprise that this is a guy from Wisconsin who played for Bon Iver. The similarities are definitely present, but he adds in some jazzy elements. The songs transport you to a super peaceful place — imagine a summer night at the cabin looking up at the moon and the stars. Very homey and serene. Enjoyed the whole thing. No real standouts. This is more of a listen-to-the-whole thing kind of album.

Best tracks: 2, 7, 9

1. (4:01) Slow. Flutes and chimes. His voice does not come in until about a minute in.
2. (3:44) ***Gentle percussions — like light rain falling on tin roofs. Drawn out, sparse vocals.
3. (3:30) Picks up the pace and is more intricate. Holds your attention. Frantic violin at the end.
4. (4:35) Slows it back down. One of those fireside, relaxing tracks.
5. (1:46) Somber but optimistic tone. Kind of drags along.
6. (4:22) Gentle soft ballad. Second half is instrumental.
7. (5:00) ***Picking of the harp. More daring than the others. Layering of sounds. Thumping drums during the climax.
8. (4:18) More mainstream sounding with a country twang.
9. (5:14) ***Persistent one note played on the strings. Then the harp enters. It’s a slow build throughout.
