About this album

Dawn is the third full-length album by Mount Eerie. It was officially released 1 November 2008 on P. W. Elverum & Sun. The songs were all written by Phil Elverum during the winter of 2002–03, which he spent alone in a cabin in a remote part of Norway. The album was released on CD concurrently with an 144-page hardcover book and 16 color photo cards. The book includes Elverum’s journal entries and drawings from his Norway trip. The book is bound in paper that gives the feeling of wood. The album was also released as just an LP packaged with Elverum self-portraits drawn from the reflection of a window in the cabin in Norway. Many of the songs appear on earlier releases by Mount Eerie. “Moon Sequel” is a follow-up to The Microphones’ song “The Moon”, and it carries the same melody. The song “Voice in Headphones” (which also appears on Lost Wisdom, released a month earlier) reprises the chorus from Björk’s song “Undo”, over a different verse. Elverum had previously covered Björk’s “All Is Full of Love” on the 2001 Microphones album Blood.

    because it's too heartbreaking for their thoughtfulness to comprehend.

    He made this while staying in a cabin in Norway for six months. Hearing this and thinking about where he was when he made it is so fascinating. A beautiful album.

    Whoa, I have this on vinyl and didn't realize who it was until now. I put it on when I'm going to sleep. I always have dreams of being in a forrest or a valley or some serene place.
