Album Review

Grouper – “Way Their Crept” – [Free Porcupine Society]

Numa   3/9/2006   A Library, CD

Grouper is Oakland-based Liz Harris. Ambient but unsettling. Looped tape hiss and hazy sounds fill this album setting the base for her beautiful yet haunting mix or indistinct post-processed vocals with pulsing guitars and keyboards. I couldn’t escape the feeling of drowning in the while I listened to this album. Curious whales happening by with their large sad eyes wanting to help only to know I was doomed. Harris’ voice is that of the helpless creatures that can do nothing but empathize with your demise. Perfect for a rainy day. Another fine release from Alaska-based Free Porcupine Society. — Numa
