🎙️ ifitbeyourwill Ep. 11 • Careful


It’s been awhile since Eric Lindley aka Careful has released a record, but with a new baby, the pandemic all whirling, the wait has been well worth it. Eric is a musical scientist/psychologist who deconstructs his songs to see why humans react to certain chord structures, certain crescendos, tapping into the depths of a composition’s truth. This reflective pulling apart and reassembly of songs makes Careful’s songs so powerful, drenched in restrain and emotion. It’s probably best he only puts out a record every handful of years because they are so profound. On Careful’s latest LP Promise/Practice, it’s a journey of the purest indie pop you'll hear in a long time. Our featured track is the sublime "White light” which you’ll hear at the end of the cast. 
Enjoy 🎙️ 






The New York Times:
“Gorgeous . . . . From a tradition of unnervingly confidential, light-voiced male singers: João Gilberto, Arthur Russell, Lou Barlow of Sebadoh, Elliott Smith, Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu.” —Ben Ratliff
