“In the Dirt” by S. Carey – You Must Listen to This Song

August 4, 2010
S. Carey "All We Grow"

S. Carey "All We Grow" Album comes out August 24.

I’ve gotten pretty involved in learning all there is to know about New Orleans music, throwing around names like Anders Osborne and Theresa Andersson and Kermit Ruffins and Rebirth Brass Band and Trombone Shorty like I’ve know who they were for more than 6 months. But learning all things music and New Orleans related will take 3 lifetimes.

So in the meantime, I’ve sprinkled in some non-New Orleans tunes. Today I was listening to my favorite music podcast, All Songs Considered on NPR, This American Life being my #1 all time fav podcast. I heard a new song from a new solo album from S. Carey. Sean plays drums and keys and sings for Justin Vernon, aka Bon Iver.

Aside from the musician, “bon iver” is French for “good winter”, and there is nothing I like more in this New Orleans heat than thinking about something cold. Especially in French.

If you like Bon Iver, you will like S. Carey. Listen to “In the Dirt” over and over. Stay inside. Watch the day disappear.

“In The Dirt” is available as a free download. Get it now while the gettin’ is hot.

    Thanks for the pointer sis. I love Bon Iver and this song is great.

    Just to be a pain in the neck corrector before the other brother gets to it — it’s actually ‘hiver’ in French, but they spelled it like it sounds to us for some reason. You probably already knew that but didn’t want to be a pedantic snot. That’s not going to stop me from doing it though.

    Keep up the blogging and directions to great ideas, interesting music, and lovely food. We miss you up here.

      Glad you are enjoying the read, and I’ll try to keep you occupied by continuing to plant tiny-mind-game-inaccuracies for you in my blogs. 🙂

    If you are new to New Orleans music you must acquaint yourself with some of the music that came out of the city in the early 50s and into the 1960s. Technically I guess it was called Rock and Roll but we always referred to it as New Orleans music. Ernie KDoe and Professor Longhair and others – you can still hear their music in what it being produced today. I say today but I am not into the new music scene but I sure love the oldies that once flowed out of New Orleans. These songs can still be heard at weddings, public events, family gatherings and even some of the local newer bands up and down the river play them. If you haven’t heard this music take awhile to take a listen. You will not like everything you hear but I am willing to bet that you will fall in love with some of it. It will add to the richness of your experience.
