A custom-blend of rock, Celtic and bluegrass, paired with great harmonies, lyrical insight and diverse arrangements, Carbon Leaf is a band on the verge.

While not quite as universally strong as their previous album, "Echo Echo" (Download it free from Amazon, you'll like it enough to want to buy it), "Indian Summer" is another extremely strong album from these guys from Virginia. The first few songs on this album, "Life Less Ordinary", and "What about Everything", along with others "Grey Sky Eyes" and "Let Your Troubles Go By" are winners that truly deserve to get the radio airplay to rise above the usual drivel you hear on radio today.
Carbon Leaf is one of the few bands I've heard in the last few years that truly has a new and unique sound. Combining great musicians (the guitar player is phenomenal to watch in concert, at no point do his fingers leave his hands), interesting sets of instruments, and a variety of influences (Celtic, Bluegrass, Country and good old fashioned rock-n-roll), they create a depth and richness of sound that few groups are able to get near.
This album, along with the others in their catalog, has literally been in my player non-stop recently. Check them out. Download their free albums, buy the others. Check out their websites. You won't be sorry.

Indian Summer by Carbon Leaf is one of the most refreshing and enjoyable albums I've come across in recent years. Much of what passes for popular music these days doesn't do much for me but these folks obviously love what they're doing and are making the most of their opportunity to make a name for themselves and rise above the current breed of "stare at their shoes and moan" bands. Excellent musicianship combined with catchy arrangements and interesting lyrics make for an extra fine album. Dare I say...intelligent acoustic poprock music? Yes - I only wish it was available in SACD or DVD-A format.

I am always looking for new music to listen to. I grew up with the Beatles and the Stones, but one has to move on. Unfortunately, I am surrounded by the garbage that my daughter listens to (JLo, Janet Jackson and the like), so I always crave new talent. I have relied on recommendations of friends and for awhile was listening to female vocalists, such as Norah Jones and Madeleine Peyroux, both of whom are wonderful in their own genres. Recently, when I asked a friend about a good rock and roll group, he suggested Carbon Leaf. Immediately when I heard this album, I was reminded of R.E.M. and in particular, the voice and lyrics of Michael Stipe. However, after playing this album several times, I realized that Carbon Leaf has their own unique style; their songs are original and thought provoking, and they are remarkable musicians who never disappoint. What makes this album even more enjoyable is that the recording is so clear, well imaged and full of detail. A must hear.

I do not pretend to be an expert music critic. I do, however, have a genuine and well-versed love for Rock 'n Roll. Especially when it is original. And, moreover, when it is clearly delivered "from the heart". I have just described "Indian Summer", the latest effort from Carbon Leaf. This is simply a perfect piece of popular music work. Effortless in it's dispatch. Intricate in it's rhythms and in it's achingly touching lyrical messages. My addiction to this stunning album is a healthy one. Not a lot of bands inspire. This one does. "Raise The Roof" will remind you of how joyous living a life should be. The final three songs on the CD, "Let Your Troubles Roll By", "When I'm Alone" and "The Sea" are a Tour De Force finale which compel a return to the start and another listen to this wondrous disc straight through again and again. One interpretation of "The Sea" is that drug addiction ain't fun. It's just that I've never heard this ages-old message presented in such a hauntingly beautiful fashion. But, then again, I've never heard a lot of things offered forth from Carbon Leaf. One last thing: Do yourself a favor and catch these guys live. I have. Twice. You will lose yourself. And I assure you that you'll find you're in a better place.

In today's popular music scene, what's old is new. With the rise of bands like the Strokes, the White Stripes, the Killers, Interpol, and many others, going with a "retro" sound is a ticket to success. Perhaps this is the thing to which Carbon Leaf can best attribute their recent success, their sound recalling the arty alternative "college rock" sound of the mid-`90s.

However, if this hard-working Richmond, Virginia-based band sounds like a blast from the past, it's because they actually are from the past. After ten years of independent releases and an endless struggle for success, Carbon Leaf have finally made their long-sought-after breakthrough with their major-label debut "Indian Summer".

This album is full of catchy, well-written tunes that will make you nostalgic for the '90s. "Life Less Ordinary", the lead single that the band recently performed on the "Dr. Phil" show, is an upbeat melodic rocker that is sure to stick in your head. "When I'm Alone" and "Grey Sky Eyes" showcase the softer, moodier side of the band with anguished acoustic melodies; "Paloma" is a bit more eclectic, with an odd but infectious bassline, and touches of Celtic and tribal music that bring Rusted Root to mind. "One Prairie Outpost" is another acoustic track, this time with a more up-tempo, slightly country-flavored melody. "What About Everything" is a bit more mid-tempo, with quirky lyrics and one of the best choruses of the album. The closing track, "The Sea", is an epic ballad, clocking in at over 7 minutes, bringing it all home in true alt-rock fashion.

The band does a fairly decent job of keeping their music interesting, with layered instrumentation, a good mix of acoustic and electric guitars, and influence from a wide variety of genres.
