Unique church concert by Phil Elverum’s superb Mount Eerie project

LOCATION PROJECT
After the successful church concerts that AB organised last year in the Church of Our Lady of Laeken (with An Pierlé’s organ concert) and the Church of Saint John the Baptist at the Béguinage in the heart of Brussels (with Stars of The Lid), AB heads to a house of worship all over again: The Brigittines Chapel. This 'Playhouse for movement'  is only 10 minutes walking distance from the AB and Brussels Central station, and very close to Recyclart.

Address: Petite rue des Brigittines, 1000 Brussels – more info: www.brigittines.be

 

WHAT?
Mount Eerie is the moniker under which Phil Elv(e)rum has been putting out enduring albums for years now, on his very own label P.W. Elverum & Sun. His latest and 9th epos ‘A Crow Looked At Me’ is the heartbreaking process of dealing with the premature death of his wife/illustrator/musician Geneviève Castrée. Ironically enough it is to be cherished in the same way as lamenting gems like ‘One More Time With Feeling’ (Nick Cave), ‘Benji’ (Sun Kill Moon) and ‘Carrie & Lowell’ (Sufjan Stevens).

QUOTE
Focus Knack: ‘Zelden komen klanken en woorden zo diep je ziel binnengeslopen als bij ‘A Crow Looked at Me’ van Mount Eerie.’

 

AB TRIVIA
Mount Eerie already impressed twice in AB, in the company of The Haxan Cloak (‘13) and Fuck Buttons (’10).

 

PROGRAMMER
Kurt Overbergh: ‘Geen plaat die dit jaar harder bij de keel grijpt of aan je ziel kleeft dan deze ‘A Crow Looked At Me’. Eindigt zonder twijfel in de top 3 van menig eindejaarslijst.’

 

FUN FACT
Remarkably (and you’d almost not believe it): Phil Elverum’s music is inspired by Norwegian black metal, that he lets filter through in his music in a unique way. He even changed his surname from Elvrum in Elverum in mid 2000, named after the Norwegian town of the same name.

Response

The sound was perfect. The performance left me knocked out and emotionally raw. I feel the need to say it's one experience all never forget.

Aangrijpend concert in een fijne setting

Snijdend door merg en been. Happend naar lucht bij teksten die bijwijlen door mijn ziel boren. Onvergetelijk. .
