Dreamy Grouper

Part-time with Badgerlore, full-time solo as Grouper, grand duchess of the split-album, and queen of the dream-folk: Liz Harris!

Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill (2008) plus...

I'd heard her name involved with some things, but saw Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill (2008) on Boomkat's Hot Offers (WHILE STOCKS LAST!) for £4! There's some other good bargains there, even with international shipping.

So, I checked it out - and it's pretty, floating, dreamy, narcotic folk. Submerged, subterranean, subconscious... Apparently a bit more vocally direct than her previous work. But that probably made it a good place to start. Short story shorter, I picked it up and suggest checking it out. I put the YouTube playlist together, and only had to add one song. It has some other stuff after that album, including a couple of tracks on a newer split with Roy Montgomery.
