I’m always drawn to music that manages to make heavy use of sustained chords and unresolved melodies without sounding, well, unsatisfying. It’s not an easy thing to accomplish, but Mount Eerie appears to have a gift for it. The songs tend to be slower and more depressing than stuff I gravitate to, but the feeling is undeniably visceral.
