9/10 Joe Customer review, 27th October 2014
This record by Phil Elvrum headed freak folk and experimental group The Microphones (later to become Mount Eerie) takes you on a complete sonic journey (I'm sorry there's really no other way to say it!). The busy and immersive african influenced drumming (track 1: the sun) breaks down and becomes something much more dark and brooding as the track develops, we are now completely removed from the world of The Glow Part 2 (the record which preceded this), and Elvrum is taking us down a much more sinister and spacious avenue. The lyrics eventually begin to pierce through the dark ambience "do you really think there's anybody out there" Elvrum moans.
This record really takes us into his mind, so difficult to describe fully, but you will leave this album a changed person, immediately wanting to dive straight back into the world of Mount Eerie.
