about

This is a special, somewhat limited* mixtape, released only on Bandcamp for these weird days.

The tracks are unmastered and a little raw, to be sure, but they're honest, and you just may enjoy one or two of them. ;)

The majority of these songs were originally written for an ensemble I led, several years ago, called The Scarletts, comprised of a euphonist, pianist, bassist, percussionist and me on bass clarinet, sax, guitar and singing. These songs have been transformed into more of a one-man electro-pop thing.

*One day, when this blows over, I will make this album "private". Only those who have downloaded it will have access.

It's worth noting that patrons have had access to these tracks for a while now - some for months! Help me create cool stuff and hear it first: www.patreon.com/carliermusic

about

Chris Carlier regina, Saskatchewan

Chris Carlier takes the little that he knows about his favourite artists and, inspired by them, splashes blotches of ink onto paper using magic and a pencil. He then hires as many great musicians as he can to back him up in a weird little thrown-together chamber-sort-of setting and shouts at them, forcing them to run around the room screaming like insane persons until music comes out. ... more

Track Name: Green & Blue
Light separates the night from the lonely day where we will call to each other
We wait, awake, uncomfortable, dishonest and fake
Soon we'll start to recognize the faces of the ordinary people who can save us

Kiss while the world is sleeping
We'll dream together.
And while the sun lights everyone,
We'll find ourselves within love.
Track Name: Here, In Your Fiery Heart
I can't think today
There's nothing I like
Drawn to confusion,
I memorize these lines

But I still miss you
And I love you
Without a heart

While I lie, sleeping
I try to think of everything, but
I can't remember
The pills don't seem to help

Take me with you
I'll be here in
Your fiery heart
Track Name: Every Night I Dream Of My Own Death, Only To Wake Up And Be Reborn Each Morning
While the world is washed away
While the skies begin to grey
I can't believe all the sounds
We choose to make
That's why I came to you
You think nothing's wrong

While I'm sleeping, where are you?
Track Name: The Gardener
Come, stand in the light
It's been a cold night
I am here, I'll make sure you've got everything
The Thumb always knows when to prune and when to let go

My friend, my love
You grow, you wait, you want
The sky and the rain that plummet's down
To hold us and our love
Track Name: The Immortal Climb, The Innevitable Fall
We have no idea
We will know when it's over
And until we fail
We must climb a little further

Now just a few of us
Some lost on the way
Some taken away
Still we can never look down
Unless we wish to let go of ourselves

We fall for days
And while descending, what a sound we will all make
