Mount Eerie Review

My review of Mount Eerie's Wind's Poem is now up at Blogcritics. It's bedroom folk inspired by black metal. At it's best, it's like My Bloody Valentine or Mogwai. At it's worse, it's sort of a hot tranny mess, like Bon Iver backed by a metal band.
It's definitely not your typical folk album. I was into a lot of this, but I'm not sure how much I'm going to listen to it. I'd recommend checking out Gravenhurst's Flashlight Seasons, which nails the cavernous, delicate folk, but without the noise. If you are in the mood for something challenging, Wind's Poem is worth your time.
