Now Only, the new LP from Mount Eerie, has inevitably been billed as the follow up to last year’s devastatingly beautiful A Crow Looked At Me. Yet, The Times-Delphic asserts that the album is “more than a companion piece.” According to a recent review, “Now Only is a stunning piece of music, the latest in a long line of seminal folk music that transport the listener to another world.” A Crow, writes the paper, is “a piece of music that’s so oppressive, so dark, so anti-optimism that it’s one of the few records where saying ‘it’s great’ and saying ‘I enjoy it’ don’t have to be synonymous… Now Only may be self-indulgent and cluttered and bizarre, but more than all that, it’s poetic and poignant, an invaluable tool for people who may have lost loved ones of their own. And unlike A Crow Looked At Me, I can unequivocally say that I enjoyed every second of it.”
