Mount Eerie to release new double album, Sauna
Mount Eerie’s Phil Elverum has been on something of a roll lately, first releasing two excellent companion albums in 2012 — Clear Moon and Ocean Roar — and then following them up with an electronics driven treatment of some of the same songs on last year’s surprisingly haunting Pre-Human Ideas. In 2015, he’s following up that set of robot balladry with a double album called Sauna, which he plans to debut first on tour this fall before releasing it via P.W. Elverum & Sun. A press release states that the album has themes of “vikings and zen and real life.” Yeah, that sounds about right.
