Early Woodsist release, from 2007; one-sided 12". "Half of the six songs on Jana Hunter's Carrion are unreleased hangers-on from the writing sessions that produced her most recent full-length, There's No Home, while the other half are alternate renditions of works that appeared on that release. But this is no mere grab bag of remnants; it's a real tight product, all around. 'Paint A Babe' is a throw-back to Hunter's earlier material, written and recorded simultaneously on a borrowed four-track recorder. A real sad, longing song. 'A Goblin, A Goblin' took a little more time to create: this strong, sturdy number, replete with violins and creepy harmony, tells the tale of an indignant outcast. 'You Will Take It and Like It,' turns one central, pretty and proud guitar part over and over and over, with others mirroring it, leeching from it, grabbing on like little parasitic danglers. The original version of 'There's No Home' is here, the track that spawned an entire record title, followed by 'Sleep' (titled, as it was originally, 'Ooh Uuh'), from the recording that ended up on a lullaby compilation. Concluding Carrion is an acoustic re-presentation of the country-minded 'Oracle,' stripped down to one guitar, one melody, and one harmony, as it was originally conceived in its creation as homage."
