Mount Eerie To Tour Australia

October just got a whole lot better. Phil Elverum is coming to Australia. According to his website, he is here for a short tour of dates including a slot on the Great Escape Festival. For those of you in the dark, Mr Elverum is a singularly talented and idiosyncratic performer who lives in Anacortes, Washington. He previously recorded as The Microphones and as such released some ground breaking music including "The Glow Pt. 2". This amazing album was recently given the reissue treatment and deservedly so, for it is quite an incredible statement. In the last few years Elverum has releasing music as Mount Eerie, sometimes making music that is indecipherable, often astounding and ALWAYS interesting. The ever prolific one will actually release a new album in early October. Named "Lost Wisdom", it will also feature the talents of Julie Doiron and Fred Squire.

Stereogum recently debuted a song off the album-"Flaming Home".

So, here are the dates, with venues still to come-
October 2-Sydney
October 3-Newcastle, Sound Summit Festival
October 4-Sydney, Great Escape Festival
October 5-Brisbane
October 6-Melbourne
October 7-Melbourne
