S. Carey - All We Grow [10 Year Anniversary]
An unassuming masterpiece turns 10 years old. Really beautiful throughout.
All We Grow was and is a convergence of S. Carey’s young lifetime spent immersed in music: his Waltz For Debby-era Bill Evans inflected jazz tendencies; his performance degree in classical percussion from the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire; his central role in the gale-force power of the Bon Iver live show; his hints of Mark Hollis’ Talk Talk. In his downtime on tour with Bon Iver, Sean would spend time pining for his life at home, dreaming and composing in that headspace.
All We Grow also retests the waters of modern classical composition, investigating the moodiness generated by percussive repetition in a manner familiar to fans of Steve Reich. For as spacious as they are, Carey’s compositions are incredibly dynamic, with moments of bombast held right next to moments of subtle depth and texture. How apropos, then, that this anniversary edition of All We Grow adds a cover of Tom Waits’ “Take it With Me”, a timeless lullaby from another artist whose voice strikes us in bracing, unexpected ways.
+ Available in Seaglass Wave Translucent vinyl, and Black vinyl.
Ten years ago, S. Carey and All We Grow crept into our world like a seedling:
delicate and unassuming, but putting down roots that would deepen and grow
whether we saw them or not. Ten years later, S. Carey and All We Grow endure
as a part of our soil, an earthen, inextricable part of planet Jagjaguwar. At a time
when serenity feels particularly scarce, All We Grow stands as a classic album -
born without expectation and met with adoration - a cathartic result of Carey’s
extraordinary and vibrant life experiences that resonates loss, dreams and heart in a manner so instantly relatable, you feel as though you can touch it.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
