Jonathan Fraser This album is absolutely amazing. One heartwreching song after another. Almost all of the tracks here are drones and they never get boring. 9.5/10 Favorite track: Landlines.

Carl Smith - Everything

Thank you for the constant support you have given me over the last 4-5 months. I have worked really hard on this album and hope you all enjoy it. All the money made for this album will go to getting more merch, possibly pressing cd's, better recording in the near future, and better equipment. Once again thank you for checking out this record, and I hope you enjoy it.

about

Carl Gene Baltimore, Maryland

Est. December 2012


"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: Ghost
Well here I am again, lost in thought. You appeared but said nothing, ghostlike you showed me the way. Well you never got to say goodbye, and I didn't see you leave. But before I knew it the book was closed. It was finished.
Track Name: Lonely
Broken and faded I don't know how to function. Old and rusted cobwebs cover over.
Track Name: For Now
My hands are trembling. I haven't felt this way in a long time. I'm okay for now.
Track Name: Naked
I'm feeling nauseous, been thinking about killing myself. I like to say I'm strong but I'm an empty shell. That man I used to be doesn't exist anymore. I've made mistakes, some big some small, I hate to tell myself, don't drop it all. I hate feeling like this. I'm feeling naked, letting my true emotions out. I'm heartbroken, been a year since I've seen myself smile. I look in the mirror, see a boy not a man. I've made mistakes, some big some small, I hate to tell myself, don't drop it all. I hate feeling like this.
Track Name: Landlines
Did you ever think that I would be wasting my time on you? Because, I've been waiting for so long, to hear your voice sing that song; It's been two years and not a single call.
Track Name: Fade // Return
It's time to go now. Time to say goodbye to all your friends; it's time to play dead. At the end of it all will you be there? Will you be proud of me or will you be ashamed?
Track Name: Scarecrow
Oh father, why did you leave? As I stare into your eyes, you become a scarecrow. Please Scarecrow, please just let me live.
Track Name: Dust
You came back to me in my dreams except; this time I was alone. I was afraid and I was dead. I tried to find mom but the mother figure was gone and I turned to dust. I know what it's like to be alone; I've seen it.
Track Name: I'll be fine.
Goodbye love, Texas is calling. Leave me here, I'll be fine. The sun will always set, but I will never sleep till you're with me.
