Seattle, Washington, United States (1995 – 2003, 2010 – present)

Carissa’s Wierd is an indie rock band which formed in Seattle, Washington, United States in 1995.

Mat Brooke and Jenn Ghetto formed Carissa’s Wierd out of Seattle in 1995, and released three albums before their 2003 breakup. Their plaintive, melancholy, beautiful music won over many who were exposed to it. The band’s lineup changed throughout the band’s existence. Mainstays in the band included violinist Sarah Standard, drummer (and later bassist) Ben Bridwell, drummer Sera Cahoone, drummer Creighton Barrett, and keyboard/accordian player Jeff Hellis. Their final album, Songs About Leaving, was a modest success in the Northwest, topping many critics charts and leaving fans hungry for more. Sadly, the band decided to go their separate ways in September of 2003. Jenn is now performing under the name S and Brooke and Bridwell went on to create Band of Horses. Brooke has since moved on to become part of Grand Archives and Sera Cahoone has launched her solo career. As of April 2007, both Grand Archives and Sera Cahoone have been signed to Sub Pop Records. In March 2010, Hardly Art announced that it would release a compilation of Carissa’s Wierd material, with songs picked by Brooke and Ghetto, followed by reissues of the group’s first three full-length records. The band played a reunion show on July 9, 2010 to support the compilation.

    Songs about leaving makes me feel, but the way it is composed sounds so wrong to me that I would be embarassed to release something like this myself.

    "Listening to CW when you're seeing somebody is NOT advised." never mind, not seeing them now. Crank up the volume!

    This one is deeper, than most of your childish "depressive-suicidal black metal" bands and other poser shit.

    So does anyone know of any bands which sound exactly like Carissa's Wierd, which I can listen to when I don't feel like listening to Carissa's Wierd? This is a serious question

    When I first started listening to this band I didn't listen to anything else other than Songs About Leaving because I was afraid I wouldn't like it as much, but now that album is probably the one I listen to the least lol.

    This is literally "I just saw my ex and it feels like we've broken up all over again" music for me [2]

    if you've only listened heavily to Songs About Leaving, please please listen to their other two albums. just as good if not better.
