What will the general attitude toward Mount Eerie be in twenty or thirty years?

"Oh, yeah! Nick Hornby, right?"

Is there a "general" attitude now?

"who?"

(in other words, OTM everyone above)

you guys are crotchety old bastards some times, y'know?

sure mount eerie haven't really made an impression (yet), but i consider myself quite a big fan of the microphones. i think elvrum (much like jeff mangum) will have an influence over future indy pop - bridging the gap between the lo-fi/noisy and multi-instrumentalist sounds...

i don't know wht the attitude will be, but my present attitude for "lost wisdom" is highly positive.

I'd like to get it--more due to Julie Doiron than Mr. Elvrum.

the duet male/female vocals is a crucial reason for this album success

love julie doiron

I'm a fan, but it's a weird non sequitur to ask for a thread start, no?

Well I'm wrapping up a listen to an advance of the new one, Sauna, right now, and my attitude is: it just became my favorite release of the year so far. I have always irregularly enjoyed Phil Elverum's work as I've heard it but I would never pretend to be an in-depth fan, so how much this draws on or perhaps only reworks more recent times I can't say. But heard it in its own right, this second, Sauna's hitting a ridiculously good sweet spot touching on understated indie rock rumination, huge drone washes and flow, moments of sudden beauty where you can hear both the performance and the production intersect in striking ways and much more. It feels like a culmination of an approach that I almost thought didn't exist much any more, and it may be comparable in its small c-catholicism and embracing feeling only to Liz Harris in terms of emotional resonance. Nothing about it per se is 'new' but everything about it connects and reaches to a higher level. A striking, wonderful listen tonight that I might have needed more than I realized.

i think that sums up my feeling about isolated Microphones tracks. When it works, it's sublime; unfortunately, albums seem very uneven.

ciderpress, Tuesday, 3 February 2015 17:31 (three years ago) Permalink

ciderpress, Tuesday, 3 February 2015 17:32 (three years ago) Permalink

It's a really lovely album. A true surprise for me.

OK I'm much more interested in hearing this now than I already was, and I loved both Clear Moon and Ocean Roar (latter was a bit overlooked). Thanks for this.

I just went from excited to hear this to EXCITED TO HEAR THIS

It'son spotify. Sauna is such a perfect title for a Mt Eerie album like this.

A bird crapped on my left shoulder on the way to work this morning and it occurred to me that a better and more relatable title for Elverum's album would have been A Crow Pooped On Me
