Grouper Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Liz Harris' music has been termed many things, and worn many different aesthetics, but it remains quintessentially her own. Having traversed a more traditional, deep-sinking drone with her looped guitar fragments on 'Cover The Windows and Walls' (released for the legendary Root Strata imprint), she created songs proper for 'Dragging a Dead Deer Up A Hill', strumming through the rain on her way to structure. 'Ruins' saw her make a record of remote piano ballads, but it spoke to how consistently she connects with listeners in any sphere: Grouper is Grouper, always.

Well it's always nice when an artist you love casually unearths an entire album of unreleased material. Liz Harris is a favourite of many of us here, we love her somnolent ethereal ghost-folk and grainy drone-scapes to bits. As these tunes are from the 'Dragging a Dead Deer...' sessions they fall largely in t...view item
This is a 2 x CD re-issue of Liz Harris 2010 two part album subtitled 'Dream Loss' and 'Alien Observer'. Now Grouper is one of those artists who has a very distinctive sound. She basically writes solemn hymn like compositions and slathers them in so much dusty detrius that the melodies get los...view item
Grouper. More commonly known as Liz Harris, she's become a real cult smash on the underground in the past 2-3 years and many of us here have been seduced. I think this album has been out for years on Type but is HIGHLY sought after on vinyl. So now here's a private (re)press edition, now in a B&W sleeve. Many of her works are built around el...view item
