Phil Elverum (AKA Mount Eerie) has dropped his first music video to date for “The Place Lives”, one of the highlights off this year’s Clear Moon. Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Elverum goes on a hike to explore his surroundings, and the end result is a slightly disorienting journey through the emerald forests. Past episodes of The X-Files or Twin Peaks come to mind, but not the show’s respective monsters and scares, instead its gloomy beauty. Stream it below.

Clear Moon is currently available via Elverum’s own imprint P.W. Elverum and Sun. His second album of 2012, Ocean Roar, hits stores on September 4th. In support of both releases, Elverum has just announced new U.S. tour dates, which you can find mapped out below.
