[Watch] Mount Eerie - "The Place Lives" (Official Video)

Phil Elverum , aka Mount Eerie, has given us the music video for "The Place Lives", the first visuals from his latest LP Clear Moon. Being a native of the Pacific Northwest, Elverum's visual accompaniment sees him journeying through the dense, emerald forests that the region is known for. Being a native of the Pacific Northwest as well, the natural beauty Elverum indulges in is very familiar to me. Although, for those who've yet to experience these lush evergreen forests in person, this video is a perfect example of this majestic environment. Watch the replay above.

Mount Eerie's latest LP Clear Moon is out now via Elverum's own P.W. Elverum and Sun imprint, and his second album of the year, Ocean Roar, is set to drop on September 4th. To support both of his 2012 releases, Mount Eerie will be touring throughout September and October. Check out his full tour itinerary after the jump.
