After releasing the monolithic Clear Moon just a few weeks ago, Mount Eerie mastermind Phil Elverum sends word of a second Mount Eerie album due out in September. Ocean Roar is set to be a companion piece to Clear Moon.  According to Elverun, Ocean Roar is a good deal darker in theme and sound than Clear Moon was and that “these [songs] are closer to studies in sound, attempts to alter the way the brain experiences its surroundings after being subjected to endless chords, repeating note flurries, stretched drones.”  He’s got my attention.

Tracklist:
1. Pale Lights (check out excerpt below)
2. Ocean Roar
3. Ancient Times
4. instrumental
5. Waves
6. Engel Der Luft (Popol Vuh)
7. I Walked Home Beholding
8. instrumental

About Gravy and Biscuits

After being alive for over three years, Gravy and Biscuits finally found its home as an indie music e-zine.

The staff is a group of Southerners who love good music, from indie to bluegrass to electronic, and lots in between.

Review-wise, we aim to give both intimate and informative reviews without being pretentious. Anybody can use a thesaurus, but we have Southern charm.
