Spin has called Now Only, the most recent album from Mount Eerie and the follow-up to last year’s A Crow Looked At Me, “essential.” According to the magazine, “Less deadpan and more florid than its predecessor, Now Only is heartrending in new, different ways. Sonically, the record doesn’t stray far from Mount Eerie’s elemental standard operating procedures, where meandering, nylon-strung acoustic strum or heavy metal thunder underlie Phil Elverum’s streams of consciousness. On Crow, this backdrop was skeletal; on this record, it’s cannier, more self-conscious.”
