This week we deal with a different kind of mental illness with a completely different kind of musician. Karen Carpenter was a wholesome, everywoman type of artist with the silkiest voice one could ever ask for. But she was haunted by the need to have control over her weight. In the end, she would succumb to complications brought on by anorexia nervosa, so it’s important we talk about her life in order to better understand how this disease affected her and her music. Prepare yourself for a cocktail of BS with a delicious glass of Lagunitas Born Yesterday and take some time to appreciate this woman’s beautiful voice.
