genre: dark ambient folk, shoe-gaze
The impression I have about Liz Harris AKA Grouper is that she is a very self-conscious and extremely shy musician that is why she buries her neat folk songs burned under the cascades of hums, hisses and white noise. This might not be true, but listening to her songs is at first very traumatic experience - you want to understand the words, you want to hear the melodies - but it all vanishes into thin ear just before your eyes/ears. Cover The Windows & The Walls was released on 12" vinyl only in 07, however this year it was re-released on CD and vinyl. Last year's Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill was one of the best albums made in 2008, but I chose this less known album for you.
