Ruins

 

In the twilight hour, crickets chirp in compliment to a lonely piano melody.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

You long for those serene nights at camp when you fell asleep to the sound of crickets. Some will find the music of Liz Harris aka Grouper, to be too mellow for their liking. Her albums flow together as a shadowy painting with subtle but spectacular detail. Capturing a similar mood to early Cat Power or Cocteau Twins at their most relaxed, Grouper’s hazy discography has been one characterized by her ability to create a unique atmosphere for her songs to exist within. Ruins is on par with anything she’s ever recorded, including the critical favorite, Dragging a Dead Deer Up A Hill. Accompanying Harris’ dreamy vocals and serene piano are the hushed sounds of the outdoors. It’s as though she’s alone in the woods near a stream, playing in tune with the natural world.
