Mount Eerie is the moniker of Pacific Northwest-based indie singer-songwriter Phil Elverum who also is part of the band The Microphones. The 2017 Mount Eerie album “A Crow Looked At Me” was written after the death of his wife, artist Geneviève Castrée, and is home to the emotionally punching yet relatable tunes like “Real Death,” When I Take out the Garbage at Night” and “Emptiness, Pt. 2.” Music magazine Pitchfork gave it a near perfect rating.
