Lately we’ve heard Phil Elverum unearthing “Black Wooden” music with “In Moonlight,” playing fragile solo pieces in Poland, and being covered beautifully by Damien Jurado. On “Flaming Home,” Elverum’s teamed up with Julie Doiron and guitarist/Doiron bandmate Fred Squire. It’s from Lost Wisdom, a 10-track collaborative album between the three. This song at least is quiet, pretty, and deals with ashes, a burning house, obliteration, and a shadow. It’s good to look at the album art because it illustrates the themes.

“Every single shape I see for the pile of dust it is. / Let’s get out of the romance.”
