Mount Eerie at the Co-Prosperity Sphere on 9.22.2012
The show opened with the talented and beautiful Angel Olsen, whose 6-song set and powerful voice started things off nicely. She played a mix of older songs from Strange Cacti, including "Drunk and With Dreams," along with several cuts from her latest album Half Way Home. Olsen also played a new unreleased song called "Lights Out," and closed with the Half Way Home single "Acrobat." Up next were Chicago locals Cains & Abels, who played a lot of songs off their new album My Life Is Easy. Their upbeat guitars and clever lyrics got the crowd warmed up nicely for Mount Eerie. Mount Eerie played a rather dark set, performing songs from their two new LPs Ocean Roar, and Clear Moon. They hit the crowd with a massive wall of sound that completely filled the venue. At times, it was easy to get fully lost in the steady drone of their complicated and layered songs.
