9/10 Brian Staff review, 01 October 2010
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!

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
