Currently on a national tour in support of their Pitchfork Best New Music'd album, 'Clear Moon', which was part 1 of a pair of records released this year. "[A]n album that makes a vast, cool sanctuary of itself and quietly beckons you in. Inscrutable and transfixing, plainspoken and unknowable...a rich meditation on the many meanings of the word 'home.'" Ocean Roar, the second Mount Eerie album of the year will be available September 4th. A darker, more experimental record than Clear Moon, the album "is the audio equivalent of the blanket of thick dark water vapor that covers the Pacific Northwest for most of the year, revealing only brief glimpses of illumination."
"The five-piece.. has created the sort of rapturous, deeply considered debut that shows a group of musicians out-of-the-gate ablaze--analogous to Wye Oak/Monarch's If Children. Somewhat a product, it feels, of the freak-folk implosion and its Animal Collective aftermath--e.g., weird folk-based music finding its mooring and turning visceral and even catchy--the laconic yet expansive Kaddish lopes along in sampled nature sounds and assorted atmospheric oddness, rolling and wistful guitar melodies, drowsy tempos, and languid and lovely vocals from Kelly Laughlin that build into stunning multi-part harmonies. Kaddish is, in short, irresistible. "
Special guest Sean Peoples will be weaving tunes between sets.
