Win Tickets To Mount Eerie At The Neptune!
The new album by Anacortes singer-songwriter Phil Elverum (aka Mount Eerie), A Crow Looked At Me, is not a happy affair; it is a concept album about the death of Elverum's wife, Geneviève Castrée, who died of pancreatic cancer last year at the age of 35. In its 9.0-rated review of the album, Pitchfork described its feeling as: "spare and clean, mostly voice and some guitar, the sound of coffee in winter. You can almost hear the floorboards creaking. In a recent interview, Elverum called it 'barely music.' Given the floss-thin line between his art and experience, you could take it as the album’s intended genre: Barely music. ... Crow isn’t so much about sickness or death but the hallucinatory stupor of grief, a state where everything—toothbrushes, flies, crows, and sunsets—flickers with suggestion and memory, as though Geneviève’s spirit had been scattered back into the universe like seeds."
Mount Eerie will perform at the Neptune on April 19th. Enter to win tickets by e-mailing us with the subject line "Ravens" and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 4/18. Good luck!
