Paste is positive about the new Mount Eerie record, proclaiming that Lost Wisdom pt. 2 is perhaps “the easiest point of entry to the Mount Eerie discography in a decade.” The LP, which is a collaboration between Phil Elverum and Julie Doiron of Eric’s Trip, follows an album the two made together in 2007. “Though Lost Wisdom, Pt. 2 readily picks up themes and images present in 2008’s Pt. 1,” Paste writes, “the album just as often gestures toward the poetic abstractions of Elverum’s work with The Microphones as it does the memoiristic approach to A Crow Looked At Me… Drifting in and out of spectral harmonizing on each of the album’s eight tracks, Doiron’s simmering soprano always adds impactful texture while still knowing when to let Elverum sing alone.”
