Not surprisingly, we are big fans of the music of Liz Harris. Mirroring, who released an album earlier this year, paired Harris with Tiny Vipers’ Jesy Fortino. Her work as Grouper has ranged from the ethereal to the jarringly surreal; 2011’s A I A (released on CD by Kranky this year) is probably the best overview of her work as a whole.
Kranky will be releasing the next Grouper album in February. It’s called The Man Who Died In His Boat, and — if the song “Vital” is any indication — will likely fall somewhat on the “accessible” side of Harris’s discography. Alternately: it’s haunting but not terrifying.
