phil elverum is slated to release a new double album, sauna, as mount eerie on february 3rd via his own p.w. elverum & sun label. the music video for the album’s lead single, “this,” is almost a necessity in order to adequately appreciate the soundscape of grating organ drones and closed-voice harmonies elverum employs. director peter j. blant blurs dream sequences and references to scandinavian mythology with relative ease while still showcasing the stunning visuals of the pacific northwest, all of which sit well over elverum’s commanding wall of sound. watch the video below.
