Mount Eerie
“Ancient Questions” (live)

As we recently reported, Mount Eerie is releasing a live 12-inch via XRA Records. Titled Live in Bloomington, September 30th, 2011, the album captures Mount Eerie as a three-piece (two keyboards, one guitar, and an Elverum) during a period after the release of 2009’s Wind’s Poem and before 2012’s Clear Moon (a period known to Mount Eerie fans as M = 2π(t - tp) /tY, a reference to the angle from the periapsis of the elliptical orbit to the mean Sun). The album, which features 10 songs, even sees the group going back to Microphones material with one of my personal favorites, “Karl Blau.”

XRA is sharing “Ancient Questions” with us, and it sounds fantastic. Thanks Mike Bridavsky at Russian Recording!

Look for Live in Bloomington, September 30th, 2011 on July 9 via XRA.
