“It was a joy to record my version of Mirah’s song ‘Of Pressure’ using the old cassette 4 track and all the instruments we used to use together in the old days,” said Mount Eerie’s Phil Elverum, “Same air organ, same antique drum machine, same chaos. I remember when Mirah first recorded her original. It was part of a batch of songs that she worked on independently of our collaboration in Dub Narcotic studio. Her 4 track world. That one was a big built world of mounting layers, the feeling of pressure and depth. I loved it and I still do. I wanted to see if I could make it a little more oppressive even.”
