Eau Claire musician S. Carey, who serves as the back-up vocalist and multi-instrumentalist for Bon Iver, is set to return with a new solo effort titled Hoyas. The four-track EP is set for release on May 8th via Jagjaguwar, and sees the artist collaborating with friend and A.A. Bondy member Ben Lester. According to a press release, the EP was recorded in an attic "using a single laptop and not much else… Some sounds were composed by handcrafted instruments and others by junk. At times, Carey tracked vocals using nothing more than his laptop’s internal microphone, and most of the beats and synthesized sounds were sequenced and arranged using stock-software," and, from there, was mixed by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and Brian Joseph and mastered by Jeff Lipton at Peerless Studios in Boston.
For now, there is no audio sample from the album, so, instead, head here to watch S. Carey and Justin Vernon's amazing 25-minute 4AD studio session, and after the jump you can take a look at the EPs tracklisting.
