Mount Eerie is the last studio album from the band The Microphones. Microphones frontman Phil Elvrum began working on "Mount Eerie" after taking a long tour of Europe and North America. Released by K Records in 2003, the album is named after the mountain on Fidalgo Island where Elvrum spent much of his childhood. Containing five songs of various lengths, the album picks up from where The Glow Pt. 2 leaves off. In the story Elvrum is dead (continuing the narrative of the glow pt.II) and he goes on a journey through a multitude of levels of consciousness and existence and (penultimately) discovers the face of the Universe. It represents a turning point and a realization period in Elvrum's life. The album is noted by critics for its stellar production and imaginative songwriting.
