Derived from the phrase carpet muncher, is used to describe singer-songwriters popular with indie women. Usually downbeat, vocal heavy and ladles of emotion.

A genre of music that will almost always result in any males in the vicinity changing the radio station, leaving the room, getting out of the car, asking "is everything alright".
