Tread lightly here. This is a challenging record to listen to. As beautiful as it is, it’s like going to a funeral. Brave, dark, sad…oddly uplifting stuff.

Written in the aftermath of his wife’s death and performed using her instruments, Phil Elverum’s candid, solitary, and heart wrenching album will destroy you. It’s a beautiful dive into grief and a frightening reminder of death’s proximity. Manchester by the Sea in musical form.

Phil Everum adds a new chapter to the mythos of Mount Eerie while processing the tragic loss of his wife to cancer. The music recalls some of his earlier work like one of my favorite entries, Lost Wisdom, with its paired down, lo-fi offerings that focus on vocals instead of his more recent noisescapes (not that those weren't good too, though). Everum has never been shy about engaging big, difficult feelings, and this one goes even further-- to say the material is heavy is a deep understatement. This is grief at full sonic force, expressed in the uniquely beautiful, reposed way that only Everum is capable of.
