A Crow Looked at Me by Mount Eerie

By Bdog

The saddest but most beautiful album of the year, “A Crow Looked At Me” is a concept album about the untimely death to cancer of singer & songwriter Phil Elverum’s spouse (fellow musician Geneviève Castrée) and how to go on living while single parenting their two year old daughter.  Like recent albums by Nick Cave (Skeleton Tree), Sufjan Stevens (Carrie & Lowell) & Sun Kil Moon (Benji), “A Crow Looked At Me” is like the “Schindler’s List” of albums- it may not be a whole lot of fun but it will continuously feed your soul.
