Mount Eerie reveals new track ‘Ocean Roar’ from upcoming album

Mount Eerie

Mount Eerie has revealed the title from his latest album ‘Ocean Roar,’ which will be out on September 4th (Digital / LP) via P.W. Elverum and Sun. This album is the dark counterpart to ‘Clear Moon,’ which was released earlier in 2012.

Listen to Mount Eerie’s track Ocean Roar below via Soundcloud.

According to Mount Eerie, ‘Ocean Roar’ acts as a counterpoint to the soft synth walls and landscape pondering of ‘Clear Moon,’ presenting the opposite of that album’s clear glints of awareness: a total wall of blue-grey oceanic fog, a half remembered dream of a trip through dense old growth hills to the gnarly winter ocean, in the middle of the night, decades ago. This album is the audio equivalent of the blanket of thick dark water vapor that covers the Pacific Northwest for most of the year, revealing only brief glimpses of illumination.


‘Ocean Roar’ track listing:

1. Pale Lights
2. Ocean Roar
3. Ancient Times
4. instrumental
5. Waves
6. Engel Der Luft (Popol Vuh)
7. I Walked Home Beholding
8. instrumental


‘Ocean Roar’ is perhaps more experimental than the average album. Calling these things songs only loosely applies. These are closer to studies in sound, attempts to alter the way the brain experiences its surroundings after being subjected to endless chords, repeating note flurries, stretched drones. It’s “psychedelic” in same way as seasickness or vertigo. Warmth and distortion, burning driftwood, 9 months of rain.
