Night Music: Grouper

October 15th, 2008 | aeropiratika

Grouper’s DRAGGING A DEAD DEER UP A HILL is a collection of songs and instrumentals that all seem to come from unknown fields in the dawn hours. Thick with mist and the white noise of strange nature. I was torn between this and the howling of "Wind And Snow," but I started to hear a detourned and distorted echo of Fleetwood Mac’s "Albatross in the middle of it. So I’m playing "When We Fall," because it’s just perfectly dark jewelled night music.

You can buy the CD from a ton of places, just stick it into Google and be amazed. Mp3 purchase can be had at eMusic.

G’night.

(Usual standards apply: mp3 is live for seven days only and provided for review purposes only, contact degaussing at googlemail com if you need it taken down immediately)
