Wind’s Poem - P/W Elverum & Sun
FILTER Grade: 82%

Phil Elverum’s series of releases have joyfully ventured into unusual formats (book, instrumental versions of past albums), and now his music takes a dark, beautiful step off the path. Wind’s Poem puts Elverum’s lo-fi folk into the sonic sphere of rattling radiator pipes, low fizz and warm vibrations. His voice is as naïve as ever, yet Wind’s Poem churns like nothing from his past, providing a therapeutic musical massage.
