Album

Mount Eerie is the fourth studio album by American indie rock band The Microphones. Frontman Phil Elvrum began work on the album after a long tour of Europe and North America. Released by K Records in 2003, the album is named after the mountain on Fidalgo Island, where Elvrum spent much of his childhood. Elvrum later used the same name for his next musical project, and released a follow-up EP to the original album in 2007. Mount Eerie. The Orchard Music от лица компании P. Язык: Русский. Страна: США. The Singing from Mount Eerie - Microphones. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей. The Microphones. Released January 21, 2003. Mount Eerie Tracklist. The Sun his three prior Microphones releases turned out, quite subconsciously, to be about Air, Water, and Fire- respectively and chronologically- Mount Eerie is, in Elvrum's words, an album more consciously about mountains and earth, though it turned out to be more about space. Its nominal peak is naturally at its heart, but only as a caricature plucked from the mind of an over-imaginative young poet, twisted and ominously stretching upward as a bridge to the heavens. Mount Eerie is a dark, reflective, melancholy, adventure. This album is very effective if you are feeling depressed or sad. Mount Eerie is best when it is a damp, rainy winter day. This is a dreary album and there is nothing upbeat about it. Even though this may sound boring the Microphones keep things interesting. Mount Eerie is approxamently 40 minutes long, and with one song being seventeen minutes long it takes up just about half the albums length. The Sun speaks for the rest of the album, gloomy, dreary, reflective, and the song builds up greatly. Even though this may seem like a huge bore at first it really grows on you. Album 2003 5 Songs. Mount Eerie Microphones. Microphones' most demanding album, Mount Eerie, isn't exactly the follow-up to The Glow, Pt. 2 that one might expect. Instead of offering more expansive, kaleidoscopic pop, Phil Elvrum presents a concept album about life, death, and identity that spans five epic songs. Microphones fans are used to Elvrum's artistic twists, but this album is a hairpin turn, moving into much more abstract territory than any of his previous work. The 17-minute opening track The Sun In which the story begins, where you are born and run away from death up the mountain in fear. Listen free to The Microphones Mount Eerie I.

Despite being titled Mount Eerie by The Microphones it really should be called: Mount Eerie AND The Microphones. Self titled of course. Despite both being a moniker for a single man, it really does feel like a collaboration between two entirely different artists. One making their swan song while the other making their humble debut. Both just as equally talented Cathartic, dark, warm, organic and imaginative I'm waiting for a dreaded heffalump to make an appearance 'Mount Eerie'. read more
