Mount Eerie Announce New Album ‘Sauna’ for 2015

Mount Eerie Announce New Album 'Sauna'
P.W. Elverum and Sun

Mount Eerie, the recording moniker of Anacortes, Washington’s ethereal music standard bearer Phil Elverum, will release a new album entitled ‘Sauna’ in 2015, Elverum announced today. The record will be Mount Eerie’s first proper full-length since 2012’s twin releases ‘Ocean Roar’ and ‘Clear Moon.’

The P.W. Elverum & Sun label website also includes a list of U.S. tour dates for the band’s September ‘Sauna and Ice Plunge Tour,’ including swings through Denver, New York, Chicago and Minneapolis.

The release of ‘Sauna’ follows two more-recent releases from Mount Eerie: 2013’s ‘Pre-Human Ideas,’ a collection of ‘Ocean Roar’ and ‘Clear Moon’ demos, and ‘Live in Bloomington’ — also from 2013 — which chronicled a 2011 show in the Indiana college town.

According to the press release, ‘Sauna’ was recorded over a period of 15 months in Anacortes, the island town in rural Northern Washington where Elverum whiles away his days in a presumed veil of trees and steam.

The press release says the record will be influenced by “Vikings and zen and real life” — reminiscent, we think, of the “mountains and websites” Elverum contemplated from behind his foggy campfire on ‘Ocean Roar.’
