    THE PHIL ELVERUM from the likes of the Microphones and Mount Eerie? HE’S AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER TOO?! My god, some people are too talented!!! I love the one of the house, the sky behind it is perfect, and the first is lovely and reminds me very much of the Pacific Northwest. Or maybe its another Phil Elverum?

      @lapetitefaon It’s totally Phil of The Microphones/Mount Eerie! Look at his website at the bottom!

      These photos totally reflect the same sentiments Phil puts into his music. The idea of being alone in this huge mountainous world, with all of our human ways creating a warm glow. I feel like I’ve seen some of these on his website before, but it’s always nice to see them again! He certainly has a knack for telling us something. As someone who has seen his live show a few times, you can tell there’s something sort of magical about the man. He’s certainly one of the great humble artists of our time.

    Fourth one down, I’m guessing, is the source material for the cover of Lost Wisdom! So cool to see!

    Such an impressive artist. I caught his show in Cincinnati two months ago, and it was the best live show I’ve ever attended.

    He has such a unified asthetic across mediums. Long ago I went hiking in the mountains in a blizzard with a bad head cold and kept trying to take Phil Elverum photos whilst Microphones songs about being obliterated by nature danced through my head.

    I met Phil at a Mount Eerie show a few years ago. He has the warmest personality. I love his music and his photographs and you can definitely tell that these are his. At least I did right off the bat! Amazing.
