We could give up and know nothing

I get the sense that Phil Elverum is the kind of guy who writes a lot of songs. I mean, that much is obvious from his prolific output as the mastermind behind the Microphones and Mount Eerie. But something in his homespun, stream-of-consciousness style gives me the impression that he has even more songs hidden away, just waiting to be released.

Now, he’s getting set to open up the archives for Song Islands Vol. 2, a 31-track rarities compilation due out on October 19. Unlike the first Song Islands compilation, this one is coming out under the Mount Eerie moniker.

Check out “Calf in Pasture” below, which has a pleasant soft rock vibe—at least until the distorted guitar enters during the bridge.
