Debuts don't come much more singular yet unassuming than Our Bed Is Green, the first album from improvising Texan stalwarts Charalambides. Initially released on cassette in 1992, and later reissued on CD on the group's own Wholly Other imprint, this home-recorded collection finds the duo of Tom and Christina Carter tentatively marking their sonic territory at some distant nexus of loner folk, ghostly blues-based improv, and psych-guitar space rock.

Candid guitar improvisations mixed with the beautiful vocals of Christina Carter create a mood of distinctive and edgy music and on Our Bed Is Green the group continue on the often maudlin themes of despair and longing.

Living Contact Christina Carter. Charalambides founders Tom & Christina Carter create a vision of iconoclastic music as transformative force. Touching on the outer limits of acid folk, psych rock, and improvisation, their sound remains uniquely personal & consistent. Since 1991, Charalambides has released many recordings on labels like Siltbreeze, kranky & Wholly Other. A self-titled 2LP is forthcoming on Drawing Room in 2018.
