Carissa's Wierd - Ugly but Honest (1999)

Carissa's Wierd was a band that was around from 1995 to 2003, at which point its various members formed Band of Horses, S, and The Grand Archives. I don't remember where I found this album originally but I've had it for a long time. It's slow, quiet, at times heartbreakingly sad.

Last.fm calls this slowcore but I outright refuse to call anything 'slowcore' as that's a stupid genre name. So into the catchall 'indie' it goes. Maybe 'alternative' as well, as it was the 90s' 'indie'. I have a system... kind of. Really the genres are meant to be specific enough to be helpful without being too specific.


Update: this is actually among my most favourite albums of ALL TIME.
