Mount Eerie – “A Crow Looked At Me”

Phil Elverum lost his wife—an artist and the mother of his child—to cancer. His new album is a meditation on her memory, but also on what it means to keep living. These songs are not fun. They are pretty and they are deep, steeped in a love that prevails beneath the overwhelming sorrow.
