Grouper - Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill
Contender for top five albums of the year status, Grouper managed to make a remarkable album. She has a knack for creating ghostly melodies that are a springboard for her beautifully haunting voice, that withers away in a forest towards the end of fall. A layer spring time pop lies buried beneath a ground overgrown with morning dew covered leaves here. Musty scents and clean air, you are in a mountain range somewhere in Colorado practicing yoga alone during the onset of dawn. Lovely.
