On his first studio album under the Microphones moniker since 2003, Phil Elverum shows he has been recording the same song since he was a teenager in the mid-1990s. Microphones in 2020 might be his apex as a songwriter.
Mount Eerie is releasing a new album, Ocean Roar on 4 September, but is still promoting the critically acclaimed Clear Moon from May. "The Place Lives" is their first ever video and tune is from that May release. Catch the band on the road beginning 25 August.
