Mount Eerie Mount Eerie

For over thirteen years Phil Elverum has been releasing beguiling records from and about the Pacific Northwest, first as the Microphones and since 2004 as Mount Eerie. Some standouts are The Glow pt. 2 (2001), Mount Eerie (2003), Lost Wisdom (2008), Wind’s Poem (2009), and now 2 companion albums for 2012: Clear Moon and Ocean Roar.
After all the world-touring that followed the release of Wind’s Poem, Phil Elverum spent 2 years establishing a new recording studio, “the Unknown”, in an old de-sanctified church in Anacortes, Washington. These 2 new albums, Clear Moon and Ocean Roar, are the first Mount Eerie recordings to be released from the new old space. You can hear the giant wooden cathedral room in these songs. Vast echo, resonating gongs, impenetrable walls, and always a voice cutting through the fog, moon-like.
For this fall of 2012 tour Mount Eerie has become a full 5 person band, performing the songs from both new albums on a mega scale. The band is touring North America re-enacting the fog walls and interlocking vocal lines, as well as the clear word blades, that make up the new albums, transporting and staging the fictional, mythical “northwest in bad weather” feeling.
