The Simple Carnival – Smitten
Seven years in the making, The Simple Carnival’s latest (and final) album is eleven tracks of meticulously-crafted power pop bliss. It’s as if Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, Todd Rundgren, Burt Bacharach, and The Beach Boys locked themselves in a recording studio for the better part of a decade to see what would happen.
Smitten contains all of the songs that have been featured in The Simple Carnival’s award-winning 3D music videos. Included with the CD is an exclusive 3D viewer and a 12-page lyric booklet containing 3D images from the (still-in-production) Smitten 3D movie.

The Simple Carnival – Girls Aliens Food
The 2008 release that’s been called “a soft pop masterpiece” (Powerpopaholic) and “STUNNING… HUGELY Recommended” (Not Lame). It’s a one-man-band album that’s sure to delight anyone up for some melodic, harmony-drenched tunes that address the three subjects in its title.
The CD available through this site is the original 2008 American edition. The mp3s — which can be purchased with or without the CD — contain both the original 2008 American edition and the 2012 Japanese remaster. (Note that, because of licensing restrictions, the cover songs that were part of the Girls Aliens Food Japanese release are not included among the mp3s.)

The Simple Carnival – Menlo Park EP
The Simple Carnival’s 2004 excursion into murky post-Smile lo-fi waters. Largely instrumental with a few signature vocals thrown in for good measure. Brian Eno-like sonic textures abound. A release that doesn’t sound like anything that The Simple Carnival has done before or since. In glorious mono sound.
The Simple Carnival – Sonic Rescue League
The Simple Carnival’s lo-fi beginnings from 2001-2005, released as an album but sequenced like a mix tape from a good friend. The tracks alternate between pop gems and studio experiments, all of which are in glorious mono sound.
