Mount Eerie

Mount Eerie, the moniker of songwriter and experimental musician Phil Elverum, has shared his first ever self-made, self-produced music video for “The Place Lives” from his latest album, Clear Moon, and announced fall tour dates including two local performances. The music video captures Elverum on a meditative walk through the woods, echoing the themes of his album.

Although Clear Moon was just released in May, Mount Eerie plans to release its second album of 2012 this September, with a new round of tour dates supporting the release. The album, Ocean Roar, is intended to be a darker counterpart to Clear Moon, incorporating heavier, more experimental themes. Stream an excerpt of the new Ocean Roar cut “Pale Lights” below:

Mount Eerie will be performing on Thursday, October 4th at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, and on Friday, October 5th at Lobot Gallery in West Oakland. Supporting act Bouquet is accompanying Mount Eerie on the California stretch of the tour.
