I've got that mountain music in me, but not since I was born
I learned about it yesterday from a CD-ROM
I wrote about Mount Eerie (aka Phil Elverum) about four years ago and mentioned that they were originally called Microphones. Changing the name was understandable, considering the modern Google search thing.
Anyway, Mount Eerie's second album, Ocean Roar, is coming out September 4th, 2012.
Ocean Roar is said to be a companion album to his previous album, Clear Moon, which was released in May 2012.
You can hear the title track "Ocean Roar" on soundcloud.com.
