Mixed, Mastered, and Produced by Carl Smith at Smith Studios in Eldersburg, Maryland in the month of April 2015.

Get Mother Moon's side here:

"Naked is the solo project of 20 year old Carl Smith, and Naked // Moon marks his third split release. The two songs from Naked, “Die // Slow” and “Weep”, were performed with only guitar and voice.

“Die // Slow” is a dreamlike mirage of reverberating guitar and deep looping chords that pulsate and warble as Smith’s voice rises and falls like a moonlit tide. The shimmering, atmospheric song succeeds in casting a spell that’s both sorrowful and sublime.

The sound of thunder begins “Weep”, and you can almost feel the drifting cascade of rain as Smith’s slow strumming blends with the ambient shimmer and drone of the looping chords beneath and around it. His echoing voice wails and dives like a phantasm as the low grinding of feedback swells into a grim and palpable presence. “Weep” is in some ways just as entrancing as the first track, but also more disturbing."


released July 30, 2015

I would like to thank the following: Nicole Colbath, Daniel Schultz, Keth Higgins, and Mother Moon (Mike, Kyle, Brenden, and Max) for deciding to do this split with me.

"Smith is very open about using the music as a conduit for dealing with his depression, but the gentle nature of the music and the melody coming from Smith’s voice create a healing narrative that take the ugly and force it out of the shadows. Even on the darkest days there is sunshine after the rain." ... more

Track Name: Die // Slow
I want to die slow
Let the rain fall
And let me rot
In the ground.

Don't cry
You'll forget me in a year

When the hole in the ground where my body lay fills,
Leave and never come back.
I'd hate to see you fake pain.
I'd hate to see you fake it.
Track Name: Weep
I'm weeping in the woods.
I'm too ugly to love.
I don't want to be here anymore.
I've got a rope.
I'm gonna jump.
The suffering is over.
