VIDEO: Mount Eerie’s “The Place Lives”

What would you do if you are a music artist but have never made a music video, but knowing it can be a means of promoting your music? In the case of Mount Eerie, you put that task in the hands of director Phil Elverum. In this case, Mount Eerie is Phil Elverum, and there lies the challenge. The end result didn’t end up in the recycle bin on his computer, but instead it’s here for you to see in the form of “The Place Lives”.

About a month from now, you’ll be able to see Elverum and Mount Eerie on the road, perhaps together, perhaps individually, we’re not sure, but it’s to promote his/their forthcoming album on his own P.W. Elverum and Sun label, Ocean Roar. It will be released on September 4th.
