Idiot Heart (2012) Purchase
“Carsie Blanton has hit one out of the park. The singer-songwriter's third album, "Idiot Heart," is funny. It's tender. It's cute. It's edgy. It's fresh. It's folksy without crossing into the realm of kitsch. The songs are clean, most with basic instrumentation and succinct arrangements, but each track bursts with its own pithy, poignant commentary on that ficklest of organs for which the album is named.” - Jess Righthand, Washington Post
Buoy (2008) Purchase
"[Carsie’s] explorations of love and guilty pleasures produce tracks that are highly addictive; you can’t even point out which are your favorites. All in all, Buoy is a satisfying album that will make you remember love in its purest sense." - Frostclick.com
Ain’t So Green (2005) Purchase
"A tuneful, playful, and thoroughly listenable confection no matter what age or degree of cynicism you happen to find yourself at." - Mike Jurkovich, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
