Stream Mount Eerie's A Crow Looked At Me Via NPR First Listen

A Crow Looked At Me, a new record by Mount Eerie, is streaming in full on NPR First Listen. Mount Eerie’s Phil Elverum wrote and recorded these songs in the wake of the death of his wife, artist Geneviève Castrée, describing in remarkably honest language both the small moments and overwhelming emotions that surrounded her death. NPR says the album “is not only a stark portrait of grief but also a love story of 13 years,” and it has received early praise from the New York Times, Pitchfork, All Songs Considered, and The Guardian. The album will be released March 24th on P.W. Elverum & Sun.

Clark Shares New Song "Hoova" For Free Download - Death Peak Out 4/7 On Warp

Clark returns this Spring with his new album Death Peak. To celebrate, he’s made  pivotal album cut Hoova available via free download. The track plays out a crucial moment on the album, it bridges the album's early, lighthearted accents and leads into Death Peak’s darker more corrosive tones.

The trance riff on this hung suspended with no beat for ages. It’s sort of fashionable to do this at the moment, to avoid the hardest part of dance music, the actual drums. For me the drums are the hardest part to get right, and I couldn’t resist the challenge, I thought “stop being a wimp get some kicks underneath the beast.
— Clark on "Hoova"
