Dust Covered Carpet – Fragile Soul / Heavy Heart (MP3)
“A rooftop above concrete or a cliff above the shore or an accident on the street.” The first lines of Fragile Soul / Heavy Heart set the tone for the rest of this strangely calm, reduced and peaceful song that is, after all, about suicide. It is no surprise, then, that Dust Covered Carpet are based in a city with a well-known affinity for all things morbid: Vienna.

Dust Covered Carpet - Achingly Honest
The third single off Witness Me Pass Out is once again a free download, and it’s a pretty great song and I continue to fall more and more in love with this band so what I’m saying is you should probably watch this and download the single for free and then consider going to one of their shows and/or buying their record.
Dust Covered Carpet: Fragile Soul / Heavy Heart
A rooftop above concrete or a cliff above the shore or an accident on the street when I’m dizzy
Suicide is love… this one is a grower. It seemed boring to me at first, and slightly pathetic too, but now I can’t stop listening. It’s a free download over at beatismurder.com. For the video, Dust Covered Carpet mix melancholic nature shots with Bernd and Hilla Becher-style industrial aesthetics.
