I always get excited when I hear something new from Phil Elverum, the mastermind behind post-Microphones project Mount Eerie. He’s local to me; Anacortes is just a quick 20 to 30 minute drive from my house. And for being local to a somewhat rural area, he’s built an empire of great recordings. He is, to put it frankly, a local indie legend.
So why all these goings-on about Elverum? He’s back! His new LP, of which there will be two in 2012, is called Clear Moon and it features the new single “House Shape”. It’s a drone-ridden tune, with overlapping vocals and a quite the catchy melody. You can stream it below.
Look for Clear Moon on May 22 and Ocean Roar later this year on his very own P.W. Elverum & Sun label.
