9/10 Staff review, 01 October 2010

***NOW FULLY RE-RELEASED ON WAX & CD BY THE LOVELY KRANKY, THIS REVIEW IS REFERING TO PAST ISSUES BUT IS QUITE RELEVANT...***

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 elements such as long, decaying, fuzzed-out drift 'n' drone washes, often with eerie, gliding disembodied vocals hovering spectrally in the ether. This album is a different beast though. There's a lot of hazily strummed acoustic guitar plus a deliciously weird chamber vibe throughout and her (beautiful) voice sounds multi-tracked & amorphous which adds a real air of otherworldliness & mystique to proceedings! This is a more intimate song-based album than some of her ghostlier outings and I think there's definitely strong psych-folk elements to this record. Yet it kind of has its own unique spiritual agenda & soundworld. Is it post-post-rock? It is certainly a rather haunting and spellbinding listen! I'd surely recommend it to fans of Christina Carter in that there's something beautifully ethereal yet very earthy & pure about this Woman's music. Don't delay as we probably will run out quite quickly!
