Grouper is an ocean of sound, a wide open sky. There is enough texture in Liz Harris’s music to keep you warm in the cold, and enough hauntingly beautiful hooks to entice a listen night after night.
Liz makes sounds that I have never heard before. She takes me in, and I reach a certain ground of security as I sit there listening. Any doubts or fears from the day are washed away in the slow, heavy softness that fills the room. It covers everything. Until the last track comes to a close I am oblivious to the passing of time.
