We recently posted the heavy, dark, fragile “In Moonlight” from Mount Eerie’s new, self-described quest for “Black Wooden” music, the Black Wooden Ceiling Opening EP. A few days later it showed up as the opening track on our quest for “BBQ” music, the Memorialized ’08 mix. Today, Elverum on the brain, we spotted a stripped down, clipped live version of “In Moonlight,” along with other footage from Phil’s current tour. He’s been in Poland from the 31st until today. Tomorrow you’ll find him in Belgium and then France, etc. The videos come from 5/31 in Gda?sk and 6/3 in Katowice. Both of those places are in Poland, per the above headline. The space where he performs in Gda?sk seems especially conducive to the atmosphere of your typical Elverum track — all very understated, but all very beautiful.

“In Moonlight”

“I Hold Nothing”

“Voice In Headphones”

This one’s from Katowice.

“Known World”

There are plenty more videos from the current tour floating around — click here to see what I mean. Today, we just kept it in Poland. By the way, you can get Black Wooden Ceiling Opening as a 10″ + CD via Elverum and Southern Distribution.

      i always thought it was b/c the glow pt.2 was an album best experienced by yourself and with headphones on.

      that being said, it’s about as good as anything anyone in the genre has ever done.

  5. This guy isn’t a bigger deal because he’s spent the last 5 years writing terrible terrible records, it would be sad if I wasn’t so pissed about wasting a lot of money on lousy ‘rare’ records. That being said, if anyone wants to buy a copy of the triple live album “Live in Copenhagen” hit me up!

  6. A lot of the crap he has released post-The Glow Pt. 2 are nothing but terrible terrible records, but he does it because people crave the “Drums from No Flashlight”, the “Singing from No Flashlight” and the latest 114 limited copies of handpainted LP cover of “No Flashlight”. The man has to eat too, so cut him some slack.
