Mount Eerie – “To The Ground”

Working under his Mount Eerie pseudonym, former Microphones guy Phil Elverum has been responsible for lots and lots of stark, powerful music over the last few years. He’s planning on releasing two albums in 2012; we recently posted “House Shape,” from the first, Clear Moon. Next week, though Elverum is also planning on releasing a… More »

Mount Eerie – “House Shape”

This year Phil Elverum will release two albums as Mount Eerie, his nom de plume since 2004. And they are two perfectly titled albums, too, if you know a thing about Mount Eerie: Up first is Clear Moon, followed soon by Ocean’s Roar. He recorded both in Anacortes, WA, in a studio dubbed “the Unknown,”… More »

Mount Eerie – “Distorted Cymbals”

Pac NW champion Phil Elv(e)rum, prodigal tape-hiss troubadour behind the monumental Microphones LP The Glow Pt. 2 and myriad Mount Eerie recordings, has a new studio product for your consumption. It’s a 7″ called “Distorted Cymbals,” and while the sheet metal itself isn’t all that distorted, the bass and guitars are overdriven and lock i… More »

Northside Festival 2011 In Photos

This year was the L Magazine’s third stab at its Williamsburg-based, CMJ-reminiscent Northside Festival. And from all accounts and perspectives, it was its most successful. It was the most Northside has felt like a real thing deserving of real attention, anyway: Instead of individual venues throwing disparate shows with great bands all over town –… More »

The ‘Gum Drop XCIV: Hear New Mount Eerie, Win MOSCOT Sunglasses

Last year Phil Elverum (Mount Eerie, the Microphones) put out Lost Wisdom, a collaboration with Eric’s Trip’s Julie Doiron and Fred Squire, but the dark, multi-textured, black metal and folk-inflected Wind’s Poem (out 8/18 on P.W. Elverum & Sun) feels like the true heir to The Glow Pt. 2 and No Flashlight. As Elverum put… More »

Mount Eerie – “Stone’s Ode”

New Mount Eerie With Julie Doiron And Fred Squire – “Flaming Home” & Lost Wisdom Album Art

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 i… More »

Mount Eerie Live In Poland

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… More »

An MP3 Mix For Your Memorial Day

It’s totally reductive to associate Memorial Day Weekend solely with drinking and eating (and not, you know, Memorializing), but here it is, that special weekend custom made for welcoming summer, getting drunk, and eating bbq, and yay for that. Before signing off for the weekend, we got to thinking that it’s been a pretty great… More »

New Mount Eerie – “In Moonlight”

Phil Elverum can kinda do no wrong. Of course, everyone does wrong, because nobody’s perfect, but the Microphones and Mount Eerie main man has a stellar track record, and we’re in no mood to quibble about the man who created The Glow Pt. 2, etc. Or, look no further than his excellently raw, heavily rotated… More »
