Epic of the week 13: Home by Carptree

Title: Home
Band: Carptree
Genre: Progressive Rock

  • Carptree is a two man act consisting of Niclas Flinck and Cal Westholm’s who also leads Jupiter Society covered in Epic of the week 03.
  • Space Rock (and other sci-fi) has an inherent optimism. It tells the listener that humanity can and will flourish in a strange and dangerous future.
  • What works particularly well about this song is that it is about astronauts having the same emotions as the rest of us. A future of space travel will not rob us of our humanity.
  • Small side projects such as this are something I have a special soft spot for. Musicians restricting themselves to very few instruments and no assistance in exchange for the freedom to experiment with form and composition of subject. Pure magic.
