The Microphones

The Microphones was the alias of Anacortes, WA-based lo-fi psych-pop mastermind Phil Elvrum, also known for his work as a member of K Records bands D+ and Old Time Relijun. Following a series of cassettes on the local Knw-Yr-Own label, including Wires and Cords, Tests, and a self-titled effort, the Microphones issued their first full-length effort, also titled Tests, on the Elsinor label in the autumn 1999. Don't Wake Me Up appeared on K the next summer, followed in 2000 by Window and It Was Hot We Stayed in the Water. 2001 saw the release of The Glow Pt. 2, which added new dimensions to the Microphones' sprawling sound. Shortly after the release of 2003's concept album Mt. Eerie, Elvrum decided to retire the Microphones moniker and continued to tour and record under the name of the collective's last album. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

something otherworldly is creeping into my ears and out with my breath...a joyous melancholy takes over
hit or miss for me.. i felt your shape is one of the greatest songs ever written.. but then there are other songs that seem to just fall apart or never get going...
THE BEST. - lacey b
not bad
probably my favorite artist right since summer though I have always been into your work under the name Microphones
I'm not going to lie, I just fell in love
I cry when I hear your voice.
greeeeeeeeee e e e e e e e e e e e e a t !
A bit ridiculously amazing.
A bit twee for my taste.
good good
phil is an obscure musical genius, too bad not too many ppl kno about the microphones
best music i have ever heard.
amatuerish for the song I heard but obviously the people/guy's ambitious so I'll give him/them another shot and keep listening

jlambe1: right on. Definately need quality headphones to get the full effect... and the volume up to 11. Really makes your head spin when the drums get slamming. I'm the same; been listening to him for years... love It Was Hot and The Glow.
Instantly enjoyable but not a purchase for me.
The Microphones are mind blowing, I can't believe people actually consider this a poor excuse for music.
yawn.. down voted and moved on... makes me think of the family joke on guys like this.. strumming a guitar and making no sense or any real music... BLAH ewww must go kill now.. so it never plays again..
kinda lame..
I think vaughnsrobe, freakshow132 2 , Micah Van Hove are all wrong (especially vaughnsrobe? ? ) , the microphones are a unique band, also Phil's voice and lyrics are way above par. I've listened to Phil for 5 years now and can honestly say he is one of my favorite musicians during his stretch under the microphones moniker. If you're new to the Microphones thing try the Glow Pt. 2 and make sure you listen to it on headphones and to the whole album.

Agreed with freakshow
Decent...wor t h listening to for sure...Nothi n g special, but better than a lot of indie try-outs
Sounds a lot like Fionn Regan. Good stuff.
