Carissa's Wierd 'You Should Be At Home Here'

Product Information //

Formed in 1995 by Mat Brooke and Jenn Ghetto, Carissa's Wierd spent the better part of a decade crafting intricate, melancholic music with hushed harmonies, heartrending lyrics, and sweeping string movements. While Brooke and Ghetto formed the core of the group, various incarnations of the band also included Sera Cahoone, Ben Bridwell, Sarah Standard, and Jeff Hellis, amongst others. Upon the dissolution of Carissa's Wierd, former members of the band went on to form Grand Archives, S, Sera Cahoone, and most notably, Band of Horses. The widespread success of these projects in many ways legitimizes the humble beginnings of Carissa's Wierd and the promise of their sound.
Following the release of the retrospective compilation, Theyll Only Miss You When You Leave: Songs 1996-2003, Hardly Art is reissuing all three of the Carissas Wierd full-lengths. Long out of print, You Should Be at Home Here is the second full-length record in the Carissas Wierd trilogy, originally released on CD by Brown Records in 2001. It is now being released on vinyl for the first time via Hardly Art.
