Today is the release of Mount Eerie’s newest album Clear Moon and I’m super excited for it. If you’re not familiar with Mount Eerie, it’s actually just one guy, Phil Elverum, though you may have also been heard him called The Microphones as well, though he’s purely Mount Eerie these days. It’s been three years since the last album, and this new one I have to admit may be favorite since The Glow Pt. 2, which Elverum released way back in 2001.
This new album may be the most cohesive and intriguing album he’s made yet. It’s dark and brooding like much of Elverum’s work, but there’s this incredible flow to the album which makes it so easy to listen to. There’s such a contrast between his voice, and the few female voices on the album, with the music itself. Check out the track above for an idea of what you can expect. You can also listen to the album in it’s entirety over on NPR for a more full preview.
