A special interview with Mount Eerie, also known as Phil Elverum formerly of The Microphones, on Surfacing with Luke M de Zilva as part of the theme of fauna.
Angus Andrew is no stranger to crossing boundary lines, not only as an artist with his New York-based band Liars, his label No Gold and his music series Essential Tremors. He joined Luke de Zilva on Surfacing to chat about the Australian left-field and underground music scene, and his passion for creating opportunities for under-exposed artists.

“The best way to look at it is like chapters of a book, you know, it’s chapters to a story” reflects award-winning musician and composer Shoeb Ahmad, aka Sia Ahmad, on the five-part song cycle of her new project. Sia joined Luke M de Zilva and Mara Schwerdtfeger on Surfacing last week to discuss how her latest EP captures this forebodingly bathetic narrative.
