is he to the Song and not the singer. The Phil Elverum writes in the booklet of the new Album "Lost Wisdom pt 2". And of course you want to hear these new Songs, taken by the Americans as Mount Eerie together with the anti-folk musician Julie Doiron, as a universal sorrow and love songs. There are songs that stir your sparse instrumentation, and the two voices of the two to tears.
There are also songs in which at times the Belief is found that the time of private disaster is now behind and a new life has begun and also begin. For example, when Elverum sings in the first song: "Out of nowhere love returned".
But the present is sad, the distortion in the sound image to indicate the. Because for three years you can't separate the music from the 41-year-old Phil Elverum from the singer. At the time, his wife, the comic artist Geneviève Castrée died shortly after the birth of their daughter.
Elverum released two startling albums with Songs that tried to hold the grief, the love of his deceased wife and the life of a young father in words. The survivors chose to access a nearly naked language, and – unlike, say, Nick cave's recent grief albums – a radical autobiographical. If the real death enters the house, sang Elverum at that time, in his gentle and engaging voice that sounds all poetry is stupid.
A Crow Looked At Me by Mount Eerie
Gone were the days when Phil Elverum was able to knock out all Private from his music. He stood up then, for an insular and hugely influential Do-it-yourself music, which he published first as The Microphones rich. Later, he is named after the mountain his home town of Anacortes, Mount Eerie, while the influence of Black Metal, elements of nature, the Vikings say and Zenmotiven in his music stronger.
now, If Elverum emphasized again that the Song and not him as a singer in the center of the new album should be, he wants to restore a bit of normality, and this past build. But it happened after the death of his wife, again, something that has promised happiness. In the summer a year ago, it was announced that Elverum has married the actress Michelle Williams. And thus the woman that is left behind after the death of her former partner Heath Ledger alone with their daughter.

The marriage is already broken again, the tabloid Newspapers reported, mentioned Elverum bitter on the new Album. He now no longer lives in the rich part of New York City, but he is back in Anacortes, the fishing town on the North-Western tip of the United States. There he has recorded with Julie Doiron (with the he has ten years ago, the first "Lost Wisdom"-part included), the new Album. Together, they found a language that brings back a More in metaphors, sometimes also a refuge in the meta-physical addiction.
But there remain those naked rows, the context in which Elverum his existence as a widower and a divorced man dissected. For example in the Song "Widows", when he sings, he woke up, trembling and with a broken heart, and his Hand like salmon skin stink. And he wonders, just a Song later, at any sunset, whether there'll be another spring.
But the Faith in the love, the happiness, too, has not abandoned Elverum, nor. How he sings with Julie Doiron the line "I believed in love and I still do", then the private fate moves into the Background. It is simply one of the saddest and yet most beautiful love songs of the past years.
