Carbon Glacier was originally released on CD in 2004, later released on vinyl in 2007. It has been out of print since 2010. It is widely seen as a groundbreaking album in the Laura Veirs canon.With her landmark fourth album, Veirs evoked the Pacific Northwest in climactic imagery – Uncut"Carbon Glacier is a cold, beautiful and engaging record that translates the bleak, isolated vastness of nature into the bleak, isolated vastness of the modern city-sprawl, leaving one voice to sing in solitude. – Pitchfork “This is an oddly beautiful album – far more engaging than you'd expect of one written in a grey Seattle winter, pondering mortality, Moby Dick and the great sheet of blackened ice after which it's named. – The Guardian Producer/drummer Tucker Martine (Modest Mouse). Martine allows the experimentation to bloom in all the right places, resulting in a record that never overworks itself, despite being packed to the gills with ghostly glockenspiels, organs, random percussion, and trombone. Veirs' hypnotic voice cuts through it all with deadpan sincerity – she's equally capable of pitch- perfect beauty ("Lonely Angel Dust”) or tightrope uneasiness (“Icebound Stream”) – that comes off somewhere between Nina Nastasia and Jolie Holland. – All Music Guide
