Grouper: "Vital"


"Vital", a track from Grouper's forthcoming LP The Man Who Died In His Boat, has Liz Harris revisiting some of her best assets to further the spare dreaminess of last year's stellar double LP A I A. Her disarming vocal performance floats delicately over the cycle of open guitar strums, a never-ending static wind gently raging surrounding it in higher end of the mix. Liz's gift of strengthening a depressed delivery pushes that feeling of smiling while you're going numb, of staying out in the snow even if it means you'll stay there forever. 

The Man Who Died In His Boat comes out February 4th on Kranky.
