It is a collection of warm electronic folk songs, full of dreamy tones and true avant tweenes. Carrie's breathy voice takes us close to the worlds of Piana, Psapp and Tujiko Noriko, as she strums her guitar alongside a basic print of electronic sounds. Her honey voice floats into an unforgettable pool of soft melodies, cushioned beats and childlike wonder, as Carrie truly displays a unique sensibility that brings us close to a world full of love and humor.
