It is almost obligatory to mention S. Carey in the same breath as his Bon Iver bandmate Justin Vernon. But the comparison is not without merit. Carey’s second full-length Range of Light is a sun-dappled kissing cousin to Bon Iver, its ethereal folk traversing the same wintry forest path. The piano-led arrangements are sparse and the vocals are Sufjan Stevens–sweet—a lighter-than-air combination capable of chasing away even the harshest of winter chills.
