Since 2003, Elverum has mostly invested his efforts into Mount Eerie. However, he has revisited The Microphones moniker sporadically over the years, including with a one-off 7-inch single in 2007. His last proper Microphones album was Mount Eerie from 2003, and his last recorded gig under that name was in 2010.
