Weird enough, when I was writing my Mulholland Drive review, I had my iPod on shuffle and this Mount Eerie song started playing, and it totally uses Angelo Badalamenti’s tune to Twin Peaks. Kinda’ weird, right? I’m a huge fan of Mount Eerie/The Microphones/Phil Elverum, so I’ll take any excuse to post his music. The sample used is titled Love Theme From Twin Peaks and is so distinct it’s hard to not to immediately think of Twin Peaks when you hear it. The way that Phil Elverum blends it into his own song is a bit of genius, in my opinion. It’s a beautiful, haunting song and his voice sounds perfect over the top of it all. If you dig this song you should check out the rest of the album that this song is from, it’s called Wind’s Poem.

    That is one of my favourite albums of his. I’ve been a huge fan of Phil for 10 years, but didn’t listen to him much for a long time before this came out after a couple of below standard shows that seemed like they were a chore to him (ever listen to Live in Copenhagen? Best show I’ve probably ever seen) and just too many releases for me to keep up with that were dwelling in the past. It renewed my love for his music and seeing him play the entire album live was such a thrill, like he was finally happy with playing music again.
