Ça-va. Some introverted ghost is keeping me home stealing screenshots from #genevièvecastrée

“I sing to you” is the first line from Mount Eerie’s (Phil Elvrum’s) new album ‘Now Only,’ the follow up to 2017’s ‘A Crow Looked At Me,’ both about the death of his young wife Geneviève Castrée from pancreatic cancer. I’m completely absorbed, once again, into Elvrum’s thoughts as he attempts to process how he and his young daughter will live on with out her. I’ve simply never heard anything so raw and honest as these two albums. They are treasures for anyone looking to find solace and understanding in the wake of a huge loss. For a year now I’ve listened over and over to Crow and now I’m only beginning to digest Now Only. Somehow and for some reason, it feels so right, so real, to contemplate death in such a poetic way and in turn appreciate and be grateful for life and to feel “lucky to still be alive.”

Comic dia 45. Créixer amb una mare molt jove immiscuida en una relació tòxica, un padrastre inclement i distant i un pare que viu a més de 3.000 quilòmetres no és fàcil. Sortir-ne més o menys sencera, una proesa. Això és el que explica aquest Susceptible, un relat de pèrdua de la innocència que ressona durant dies. Malauradament, aquesta és la única obra llarga que llegirem de #genevièvecastrée El 2015, li diagnosticaren un càncer de pàncrees i morí el juliol de l'any següent. Al juny @drawnandquarterly publicarà la seva última obra, un llibret que dibuixà per a la seva filla de dos anys, durant els darrers mesos de vida. Castrée també feia música delicada sota el nom de Ô PAON. La seva parella, el músic Mount Eerie, conjurà el seu traspàs en un dels discs del 2017, A crow looked at me #365d365bd #onecomicaday

Une immense découverte m’attendait en 2013, Geneviève Gosselin Elverum dite Castrée qui grâce à son roman graphique #susceptible m’a complètement bouleversée et permit de découvrir un éventail d’autres êtres aussi talentueux! Depuis me voici obsédée par cette artiste incroyable aux talents multiples. #genevièvecastrée #genevieveelverum #roulathequeroulathequenicolore #mamansauvage #loiedecravan #lapocalypse

Geneviève Castrée was one of my favourite singer/songwriters/artists of recent years. This is a beautiful album, and I received a lovely handwritten note from her when I ordered it too. #genevièvecastrée #opaon #fleuve #vinyl

Really didn’t expect to greet the day sobbing on the toilet, but here we are.

#JulyVinylChallenge Day 15: An album that makes you think of your spouse

Ô Paon - Courses (2010, Ô Paon Records)

One year and one week ago, a daughter lost a mother she would never know and a husband lost everything else. Geneviève Castrée was an illustrator and recording artist under the names Woelv and Ô Paon. She frequently collaborated with her husband, Phil Elverum of The Microphones and Mount Eerie. She died of pancreatic cancer on July 9th 2016, only one year after becoming a mother.
I started writing this entry about her and Phil and I actually used the phrase "we all lost a spouse that day". I deleted all of it. It was stupid and it was contrived and it was insincere. I didn't know where the hell I was going with it. But I still want to talk about it. So I'm gonna usurp the category so that I can say something real today.

I'm not married. I hope to be one day. But when I had heard of Geneviève's passing, I was reminded that the same pain her family feels is certainly coming for me too. I nearly had a breakdown earlier this year. I don't like to talk about it much outside of my family but I was dealing with a similar sense of loss. With the help of professionals, I eventually made peace with it. But for a while, a question plagued me: Is the love we give others worth the pain of losing them?
After a while, I made up my mind and decided that the answer had to be yes. There'd be no reason to carry on otherwise. So no matter what happens in your life, promise me that you'll give all the love you possibly can in one lifetime. Because I'm certain it's the only way we can keep moving forward.

This album.

Big, fat package of heartbreak arrived today from #pwelverumandsun to help us remember the late, amazing, #genevièvecastrée

Music about death really gets me. I think it's that death and dying are among the greatest mysteries of our human experience. I'll grab on to anything that honestly tries to make sense of it. Whenever I come across art that opens up a window into that mystery, I am utterly captivated. Mount Eerie's album, A CROW LOOKED AT ME, is a masterpiece of an attempt to understand loss and how to continue on afterward. A breathtaking and heartbreaking work of art by Phil Elvrum that follows his thoughts as he tries to mentally work through the untimely death of his own young wife Geneviève Castrée. #💔

Rediscovered this photo of Geneviève Castrée that I took five years ago when she played at Festsaal Kreuzberg with her husband Phil Elverum. The picture shows her as the strong and cheerful person I remember her to be when she took the stage and played her songs for us. And yet she referred to herself as this fragile little flower, asking us to not smoke cigarettes inside the room.
Last year Geneviève passed away. Fuck cancer. Phil has written a collection of songs about it that will come out this week as the new Mount Eerie album, repeating her memory like a prayer. Some reviewer said he hates this needs to exist. And he hates that it's so completely wonderful and resonant as a record. Which is very true.
