grouper - dragging a dead dear up a hill

this is my first post in a long time, gosh. but i've decided that it is summer and now that i have more free time on my hands i should probably try to update this at the very least once a week, cause i mean... what else do i have to do?

so anyway, grouper. i found out about this project maybe a few days ago and it is perfect for late nights and long drive through the woods with the windows of your car down and a light fog covering the streetlights. it's a solo project of this girl liz harris from portland, oregon. some of these songs have this eerie feel to them while she lightly strums her guitar and sings real soft over it. the second song on this album "heavy water/i'd rather be sleeping" is so quiet and dreamy sounding. as a whole, this album is pretty hazy sounding, but i don't think she overdoes it. this was her third album, released in 2008. this album is pretty, but not pretentious. it's sleepy, but not asleep. and pitchfork gave it an 8.2, so it must be pretty good (hardy har harrrrrrr....) (....but really, it's good!).
