Carissa's Wierd- Songs About Leaving

I haven't listened to this band all that much, but I like them a lot. Melancholy indie rock about everything sad in the world. Lots of male/female harmonies and somber piano stabs in between plucked minor guitar. They remind me of another defunct band, Very Secretary.

Two members of Carissa's Wierd went on to form Band of Horses, which some people like. Also, "weird" is supposed to be spelled like that.

Pele- Enemies

Sorry for the long dry spell. Summer has been hectic. This is one of my favorite instrumental CDs and it's great for summer. Pele has a very musical approach to their music and is unique among the somewhat stale instrumental rock genre.
