About Mount Eerie

As Mount Eerie, songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Phil Elverum expands on the searching feel of his music with the Microphones. Confessional lyrics and free-flowing storytelling are the main constants of his work, which incorporates touches of ambient, folk, and black metal in impressionistic ways that heighten the feeling of wonder in his music. On early albums such as 2005's No Flashlight, the difference between Mount Eerie and the Microphones was subtle, but later releases showed how much his range had grown. The metal-influenced majesty of 2009's Wind's Poem, the serene electro-acoustic meditations of Clear Moon, and the dense soundscapes of Ocean Roar (both from 2012) all reflected different sides of his musings on life and death. Elverum documented the aftermath of his wife Geneviève Castrée's death on 2017's A Crow Looked at Me and the following year's Now Only, which were widely acclaimed for their eloquent, unflinching expressions of grief.
