Biography

Anacortes WA, United States (2003 – present)

Mount Eerie represents the latest evolution of Phil Elverum’s musical vision. Formerly known as The Microphones, Phil changed his project’s name to Mount Eerie while maintaining his subtle, lo-fi, and lyrically dense fuzz-folk aesthetic.

Elverum explained this change in an 2003 interview with Discorder, asserting that “Mount Eerie is a new project. The Microphones was completed, or at least at a good stopping point. I did it because I am ready for new things. I am new.”

As Mount Eerie, Phil typically works with synthesizers, guitars, drums, and the accenting voices of Mirah, The Blow, and fellow K-Records/Anacortes, Washington friends. Mount Eerie’s album “Seven New Songs of Mount Eerie” was also the first recording released on Phil’s new label, P.W.Elverum & Sun. All songs from that recording are available for free download in the Internet Archive.

    I like Pre-Human Ideas. He uses the auto tune differently on every song, and on some songs he adds entirely new parts and verses. Like, the way it goes into a "female" voice for a completely new section after "one long exhale" in House Shape is genuinely amazing.

    Umm... Anywhere. If you want something depressing, go for Dawn. If you want something uplifting, listen to It Was Hot, We Stayed In the Water. If you want something epic, listen to Mount Eerie the album. You should listen to everything, eventually, because they all relate to each other. Can't really go wrong.

    Hey guys, quick question for all ME/Microphones fans out here. I've found "Lost wisdom", "Clear moon" and "The Glow Pt. 2" very enjoyable. What should I go for next?

    Dragon is one of his best songs in a very long time, super excited for his new album.
