a bold album of luxurious, brassy soundscapes that recall the most experimental and satisfying creative moments of Sufjan stevens (who also happens to feature on this record).
The music of CARM features horns in roles typically reserved for drums, guitars, and voices, while also escaping the genre categorisations reserved for music featuring an instrumentalist as bandleader. It is not jazz or classical music, nor is it a soundtrack. This is contemporary popular music that features a sound normally used as a background colour and texture as the unabashed lead voice. Produced in Minneapolis by Ryan Olson ( Polica , Lizzo ) and featuring collaborations with Sufjan Stevens , Justin Vernon ( Bon Iver ), Yo La Tengo , Shara Nova , Mouse on Mars , Francis and the Lights and many others, It is a completely unique sound that additionally serves as a survey of the collaborations that have come to define the artist’s career thus far.
