Band BiographyEdit

The Microphones is the name of the project that Phil Elverum headed from the late 90's to 2004. The group's sound is best described as lo-fi "fuzz folk," ranging from drum-crashing, bass-thrashing sonic freakouts, strummy classical guitar love songs, angelic vocal choirs, and almost whispered vocals over harmoniums and bell kits. The Microphones produced some of the greatest recordings, as well as some of the most distinctive artists, for K records' catalog before disbanding in 2004. Former Microphones members/collaborators include Karl Blau, Dennis Driscoll, Kyle Field aka Little Wings, Mirah, Khaela Maricich aka The Blow, Adrian Orange aka Thanksgiving, and K records' founder, Calvin Johnson of Beat Happening and The Halo Benders. Elvrum changed his name to "Elverum," in 2004 and now records and tours under the name Mount Eerie.
