Mount Eerie announces second album of 2012; Ocean Roar out this September

 

After releasing the monolithic Clear Moon just a few weeks ago, Mount Eerie mastermind Phil Elverum sends word of a second Mount Eerie album due out in September. Ocean Roar is set to be a companion piece to Clear Moon.  According to Elverun, Ocean Roar is a good deal darker in theme and sound than Clear Moon was and that “these [songs] are closer to studies in sound, attempts to alter the way the brain experiences its surroundings after being subjected to endless chords, repeating note flurries, stretched drones.”  He’s got my attention.

Tracklist:
1. Pale Lights (check out excerpt below)
2. Ocean Roar
3. Ancient Times
4. instrumental
5. Waves
6. Engel Der Luft (Popol Vuh)
7. I Walked Home Beholding
8. instrumental
