Sean Carey :: "In The Dirt"

Sean Carey is a founding member of Justin Vernon's Bon Iver and the impact of this experience is undeniable. Although, perhaps, Carey's union with Vernon devolves into chicken-or-egg logic. Did Vernon influence Carey or was Carey drawn to Vernon by common style? I would bear this out further but I suspect neither of us has the time. On debut album, We All Grow, Carey features the sparse and lonely "In The Dirt." With a bridge of whirring winds and keys out of Sufjan's catalogue, the cut finally erupts (probably the wrong word) into echoing claps, rolling keys and longing vocals. While this isn't directed specifically at Emma, or some other proper noun disaster, Carey, like his cover art, has his head under water and his legs flailing in the air. I mean that as a compliment.
