Editors’ Notes

Fans of Erin McCarley’s gorgeous 2008 debut Love, Save the Empty have been waiting nearly four years for her sophomore album. My Stadium Electric rewards their patience right from the opening single “Elevator.” It starts with exotic tones that fall somewhere between Bollywood soundtracks and Indonesian music before grooving on woody rhythms that move like kinetic layers of field-recorded percussion. But it’s the textured timbre of McCarley’s arresting voice that pulls the listener in. The production in the following “You’re Not That Someone” is just as winsome as the song itself. A reverberated guitar-string trill recalls Portishead’s 1994 hit “Sour Times.” But what’s more impressive is McCarley’s airtight hip-hop phrasing in the verses. She builds up a palpable tension in “Vertigo” while admitting that she doesn’t want to let go of her fears. “Survey” is similarly haunting — as is the beginning of “Amber Waves” with its antique music-box intro — but the latter takes off with pedaling rhythms and soaring melodies. The uplifting “Just Another Day” struts on boomy drums and handclap rhythms.

Customer Reviews


"My Stadium Electric" comes at you with a bang. This album is quite a big jump from McCarley's previous album and takes a very different direction sonically, which is not a negative thing. McCarley's "My Stadium Electric" comes out of the gloom and steps more into the light. Very energetic, free, power-packed, and modern-sounding with a mix of alternative. "You're Not That Someone" shows this. Quite a package.

Better Than Her First

Erin's music is uniquely her. It's amazing to me how every song can be so different, but so perfectly fit. It's quirky, it's fun, and there's also so much soul behind every single one of these songs. I was a huge fan of her first album, and I've been SO looking forward to this sophomore album, that I even put it on my calendar. My Stadium Electric does NOT disappoint! Great job, Erin! Love it!


Great the stong vocals... you can hear each word and they come through with meaning and strength.

Although based in Nashville, singer/songwriter Erin McCarley cut her teeth on the San Diego circuit, where she sang in a country cover band and spent her free time writing songs. She later partnered with producer/composer Jamie Kenney and relocated to Nashville, which brought her closer to her native Texas. Combining uplifting pop/rock hooks with McCarley's wide-ranging vocals, the duo wrote an album's worth of material before McCarley decamped to Austin for the 2008 South by Southwest Festival....
