The new Microphones album Live in Japan February 19th, 21st and 22nd, 2003 features previously unreleased material from singer/songwriter Phil Elverum. These 11 songs are only a sampling of all new songs performed by Elverum in a two-week tour of Japan in early 2003. After spending five months in isolation in Norway, Elverum emerged with a cache of heart-felt and reflective songs reminiscent of The Glow Part II. A drastic change from 2002ıs epic tale of Mount Eerie, we find Elverum playing acoustic pop songs with the bare minimum backing of instrumentation. Kyle Field (Little Wings) and Calvin Johnson (Dub Narcotic Sound System) join Elverum on ³Universe Conclusion² and ³I Love You So Much.² ³Climb Over² features The Mools as the backing band.
