"maybe some peeps get why @scareymusic is the fucking best now," tweeted Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon about a month ago, shortly after 4AD-shot footage of he and vocalist/longtime drummer/multi-instrumentalist/not-so-secret weapon Sean Carey stripping down tracks from their Grammy-nominated sophomore full-length began to circulate online. It was staggering, as well as a perfect reminder to revisit Carey's shape-shifting, jazz-influenced solo debut, 2009's All We Grow. On May 8, Jagjaguwar will release Hoyas, an EP of four similarly expansive Carey compositions, recorded in his attic on a laptop. "Two Angles" is the first, a feast of electronic ripples, stately horns, burbling guitar, and gorgeous falsetto – his own.
