Carissa's Wierd - You Should Be at Home Here (2001)

Carissa's Wierd (no that is not a spelling mistake that is how the band name is spelled) might just be the most consistently sad sounding band i've heard. Not like mopey boo-hooing by any means, they just hit a sweet spot with their sound.

I've never heard any band quite like Carissa's Wierd, and they do that without being senselessly abstract or baroque. Straight ahead instrumentation, singing, and structure, just done simply perfectly. They don't get enough recognition.
i won't need anymore memories
for the next 50 years i could still write you love songs
i won't need anymore photographs
to remember the color of the clothes you wore that night
