REPORTING BACK: oh man, way better than i remember. shoot. great atmosphere to the whole thing and then there are these moments where things just hit. also that bit in "Lemonade Sweetheart".

1. awesome. all three of their albums are really great. the s/t is probably their weakest though.

2. be careful with it. a dangerous one.

and while sort of on The New Year, Bedhead. so good. What Fun Life Was just engulfs you. swoon.

and and since this post is already pretty long, i'm going to make it longer. brief thoughts on Carissa's Wierd are i like them. some songs are just spectacular, but i find myself getting less and less tolerant of the dude's voice. it strikes me as being much too Bright Eyes-y for me at this point in time.

I like Codeine a lot, but I always get the feeling when listening to their stuff that it would sound better if it wasn't so...well slow. And besides Codeine, and Red House Painters, I barely listen to slow core, so you can go ahead and disregard my comment.

Quite glad I clicked on this thread, a, downloading Escape the Day's Ghostless right now and wanted to buy Songs About Leaving, but very expensive for a physical copy

Is there any other similar bands I should be checking out?

Low Low Low...that is all. Amazing band.

I love Codeine as well, tied with Morphine for my favorite non-slang blatant drug name band.

Jenn Ghetto and Mat Brooke bought back the rights to the Carissa's Wierd catalog last year so reissues are supposedly on the way, but who knows when that will be.

you should check out the low/dirty 3 in the fish tank collaboration, it's beautiful. They even cover neil young on it.

check out the album closer:


edit:
while on the subject of slowcore, I'm not sure really where the line of slowcore ends and other genres begin but some of my favorites artists that I think fit into the genre are low, red house painters, cat power, dirty three, ida, smog, bonnie "prince" billie, etc...

I loooooooove Ida. And yeah, it is a bit difficult sometimes to determine whether or not a band is "slowcore". Doesn't bother me too much though if the music is good.

Sorry it took me so long to get back, but uhhh me?, I'm a complete noob to this stuff, I've just heard a bit of Carissa's Weird and liked it.

Thank you wizards?

Both of you have inquisitive user names.

a brief linklist of stuff not on wizards? list.

Codeine - Vacancy

Bluetile Lounge - Ambered

Bedhead - Roman Candle

Duster - Cooking

Kepler - Our Little Museum


i love Kepler so much. i would have posted the one other track i could find from Missionless Days, but it is the last track on the album and a lot of its punch comes from the album format. so, uh, find the album and listen that way.


oh, and if you are into post-rock, give Early Day Miners a chance. Placer Found is pretty good. i don't love it, but a lot of people think of it very highly.

^Placer Found is the shit. It's like The Appleseed Cast meets Everything is Made in China meets Low which are three of my favorite bands. The rest of their albums have their good parts, but Placer Found is just awesome.
