Mount Eerie Compilation :: Song Islands, Vol. II

The Microphones and Mount Eerie can be marked by the plethora of non-album tracks, demos and stray recordings. From strange compilations to random 7" from the late 90's and beyond, a lot of stuff showed up from The Microphones on Song Islands Volume I. When The Glow Pt. II was reissued on vinyl, it came with an extra disc of outtakes and alternate versions of songs from that album that were equally interesting, that become poems and experimentations that trail off into a deep nothing. Song Islands Volume II catches stuff from The Glow Pt. II era up to Wind's Poem. One of my favorites from the bonus disc for The Glow Pt. II was called "Where Lies My Tarp?" and its the same version on this album. A little sad we didn't see "Lanterns" on this one.
