Mount Eerie, much like that first robin of spring, brings joy/music to the West Coast on tour

The ever-prolific Phil Elverum (perhaps better known as the man behind Mount Eerie) is taking his lo-fi earthy show on the road again this spring and he’s bringing some special friends. Mount Eerie will appear at festivals, universities, and swingin’ hotspots across the West Coast, performing songs and out-arting the art school kids. But it’s not all about the Anacortes, WA-based musician this year — oh no! In fact, Mr. Elverum and co. are about to release recordings by their spring tourmates Key Losers and Nicholas Krgovich in May, to guide our collective way into the warmer, more hopeful seasons, just as the biblical Noah released that one, gleaming, wonderful dove into the world to bring him back a symbol that the floods were abating, or perhaps to just find a nearby Jimmy John’s location.*

Anyway, sometime in late May P.W. Elverum & Sun, the record label arm of the Mount Eerie world, plans to release California Lite, an LP/download by Katy Davidson (Dear Nora, Lloyd & Michael, solo work) and an unnamed Anacortes supergroup. The mouthpiece of the Anacorteans has already described the LP as “unanimously pre-designated as a classic album.” P.W.E. & S. also has a 7-inch single by fellow tourmate Nicholas Krgovich (No Kids, Mount Eerie) scheduled for a similarly enigmatic late-May 2011 release.

* Note: the release of these recordings is actually not like that at all.
