At this point, the entire region of the Northwest is basically as much a member and driving force behind Mount Eerie as Phil Elverum is. In the video for “The Place Lives,” Elverum walks on damp, grey roads and makes coffee in the woods surrounded by leaves still all shiny from the rain. Nothing much happens, but it’s beautiful and sometimes breathtaking and lends a whole new life to a song that we’d previously overlooked as an an interstitial track on Clear Moon.
