Grouper: "Hold"

One gets the feeling that Liz Harris--aka Grouper, one of this century's most valuable and underrated auteurs--covers her world in echo and distortion because it'd be too beautiful for her to bear otherwise. At least that's the conclusion that the lovely "Hold--a-side to a forthcoming tour 7-inch--brings me to. Harris hasn't released a full-length album since 2008's Dragging a Dear Up a Dead Hill, but "Hold" should certainly tide her fans over for the time being. As in her best work, the songs manages to mesmerize without doing very much: the voice moans and warbles bur says nothing in particular, the guitar haunts like some long-repressed nightmare, and the listener is once again lulled into submission. The limited edition tour 7-inch it out 10/6 via Room 240. Track below. [GvB]
