Mount Eerie - Wind's Poem (2009)

Phil Elvrum's latest, Wind's Poem, brings together so many different worlds of music to make one of the most original and cohesive albums to come out in quite some time. Drawing an intriguing amount of influence from depressive black metal artists like Xasthur (check out 'A Gate Through Bloodstained Mirrors' and you'll see exactly what's going on) as well as keeping up his signature lo-fi, fuzz-folk vibe and soothing voice, Phil creates something truly special. There is also a healthy dose of drone-influenced soundscapes, filled with richly harmonized organs and distorted guitars as well as plenty of gongs. Do yourself a favor and delve into this masterpiece.

I think there is something wrong with the file. When I decode the .rar file, it only lets me get the first three songs, then it fails. The first three are ambient and divine, though.

Oh... If you like ambient music, you should check out Tim Hecker. My brother and I saw him in Philadelphia the other week at a bar called the Kung Foo Necktie. Pretty transcendent.
