9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 03 December 2009
Phil Elverum has a new six track mini album out on Latitudes under the guise of Mount Eerie entitled 'Black Wooden Ceiling Opening'. Recorded on the fly at Southern studios after a trip to Norway, the birthplace of black metal, Elverum invokes elements of its spirit here with the title, a reference to Black Metal.... (but made of wood)... you see. These songs are stripped down guitar and vocal tracks devoid of studio trickery which gives this recording a simple, old school Microphones-esque quality. Tracks are primarily one take jobs due to time constraints but the music doesn't suffer for it. Opener 'Black Wooden' is Nordic metal interpreted in a David Grubb's style and 'Marriage' has some cool Maiden style riffage in amongst the folksy melody whilst 'Appitite' is as effective as anything I've heard from Elverum (as either Mount Eerie or The Microphones). Available in super limited quantities, if you enjoy Elverum's work I urge you to track this down.
