Bon Iver’s S. Carey Announces New EP, ‘Hoyas’

    It was just this past Friday that we saw Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Sean Carey performing tracks from the band’s discography (and a Bonnie Raitt cover!) live for 4AD and Jagjaguwar. And in watching the performance, Prefix contributor Matthew MacFarland noted that it reminded him of Carey’s 2010 release, All We Grow. With that in mind, it only seems right that Carey would today reveal his latest project, the Hoyas EP. It’s due out May 8 on Jagjaguwar and features him playing with Ben Lester, of A.A. Bondy. The EP was mixed and produced by Vernon and Brian Joseph.
