KID ON THE CARPET Kid on the carpet guiding me home Liberating ocean too colorful to roam Thrill of disappearing, silent wintertime Floating on a carpet into a better life All is in the drawings as things get in the way The kid on the carpet he draws a new day Draws a yellow sunrise, draws into the night The kid on the carpet never asking why Convinced that he can do it for he’s never tried before To fall into the unknown, find the treasures on the floor All it takes is courage, the urge to find out more A palette on your mind and all the colors you adore The kid’s been set aside but in all the tears he cries A lighthouse will reveal, just be open to the signs In all sweet lullabies there’s truth and there’s a lie Sweeter all together then tons of apple pie The kid on the carpet as mother sings to him Scribbles leaves and branches as he hides the words within The outside closing in but never close enough The kid on the carpet is always in love

about

KASPAR BAUM is an Utrecht-based alternative rock / post punk band around singer-songwriter Erny Green, who has already released ten original albums over the past decades and in recent years, also stood out as a vocalist in world’s best Joy Division tribute band Joy Division Undercover.

The band’s debut album Vuurland will be released 10th December, 2021. On the record many influences can be heard in a range from the 80’s bands such as Joy Division, The Smiths and The Cure, through the 90’s bands such as Wilco and Radiohead to more contemporary bands like Editors, Arcade Fire and War On Drugs. Even Bob Dylan is not lacking as a reference. Nevertheless, Kaspar Baum does certainly have a unique sound of its own. Responsible for this sound, next to a strongly felt urgency is the homogeneous production of the album, which was entirely in the hands of Erny Green himself. Perhaps even more important are the tasteful contributions of the three other band members who provide the characteristic voice of Erny Green with whatever it needs in each particular song. We could say that Vuurland is an album that has some timeless ‘classics’ abord. No one can ignore Kaspar Baum as soon as the debut album Vuurland has seen the light. So far we know already.

The first single Ugly Black Monster was released at the beginning of this summer and the second single Blindfolded just premiered now.
The band was formed after Erny Green had been jamming in his own Vuurland Studio with bass player Evert Smit and drummer Jelmer de Haas (both had played together in the band Walker Diver). Shortly after the Netherlands went into Corona-lockdown, the three guys decided to start working on a completely new album. In quarantine. Soon star guitarist Rempe Kooij (Clean, Mina Caputo, Pole Shift Survival Group, Dave Rave) joined the trio and Kaspar Baum was born. During a full year of hiding in their basement studio, ten songs were written, recorded, mixed and mastered. Their result is the debut album Vuurland, an urgent masterpiece. And as befits a DIY band, all the artwork comes from Jelmer de Haas, who is, next to being drummer, a photographer, too.

Kaspar Baum are:

Erny Green (Joy Division Undercover, Polgate, The Eternal) – Vocals, Guitar & Keys
Evert Smit (Walker Diver, Sured) – Bass & Synths
Jelmer de Haas (Walker Diver, Five Dollar Shake) – Drums & Percussion
Rempe Kooij (Clean, Mina Caputo, Pole Shift Survival Group, Dave Rave) – Guitar

about

Erny Green Utrecht, Netherlands

In '88 trekt Green als straatmuzikant de wereld in. Kille straathoeken wereldwijd, maar ook roemruchte podia als CBGB’s in New York, het zijn de ideale speelplekken voor de Nederlander in deze roerige jaren. In 1992 keert hij gemangeld terug en brengt zijn 1e soloalbum uit.
25 jaar en 9 albums later is het Green gelukt zich bij de absolute top van de Nederlandse liedjesschrijvers te vestigen.
