Here’s Phil Elverum of P.W. Elverum & Sun stepping out of his auto in Olympia while making the rounds of prime posting locations. Ms. Mariella Luz greets him with her usual aplomb:
The Anacortes Unknown Music Series starts tomorrow, July 18. It features mass K artists including the Hive Dwellers, Arrington de Dionyso’s Malaikat dan Singa, Karl Blau, LAKE, Lovers without Borders, Mecca Normal and D+:
See you there!
Phil came by the K Warehouse today to chat, check things out and model the new K Records bandanas! A back pocket has never looked so good. And I’m totally digging those cornflower blue socks.
Pret-ty adorable. Don’t ya think?
HA! BASKETBALL PLAYERS AND MUSICIANS. TOGETHER. GENIUS.
Mount Eerie is touring! Phil will be taking his gorgeous Pacific Northwest doom and gloom all across the country (and into Canada) this fall. Tour dates can be found on the K shows page and at P.W. Elverum & Sun. It will be amazing.
I can’t speak for everyone around here (since everyone else is on tour!), but a bunch of us at K like Jarvis Cocker. So can you imagine how exciting it was for us to get an email from Lois telling us that he played Mount Eerie and our pals, Earth, on his weekly radio show last Sunday? SO EXCITING! You can listen to it here while it’s up for the next couple of days, and if you’re lucky enough to be in Europe, you have the opportunity to see both bands before they wrap up their European tour together with Ô Paon on the 6th!

LAKE and Phil were in the studio yesterday! Man, look at those guys!
Anglepoise Cymbals! Selector Dub Narcotic’s (aka Calvin Johnson) remix of the new Mount Eerie track (<—a link to buy the 7”, hint hint). Man, I love me some good melodica playin’—it sure brings in the birds, if ya know what I’m sayin’.Played 160 times.
This is incredible. Phil Elverum (of The Microphones and Mount Eerie) is doing karaoke to a Li’l Wayne song. He busts some killer moves, and his rapping skills are impressive to say the least. This was presumably shot by Arrington de Dionyso.
Mount Eerie’s new Dub Narcotic Disco Plate, Distorted Cymbals, will be released on February 7th.
These won’t last long, so go get ‘em while you can!
