Grouper announces new album Grid of Points, shares new song “Parking Lot”
Liz Harris returns next month with another devastating Grouper album, in a similar vein as her 2014 masterpiece Ruins. Grid of Points is a starkly beautiful, intimate, and achingly fleeting "set of songs for piano and voice", inspired by "the idea that something is missing or cold". Liz says of the new album:
"I wrote these songs over a week and a half; they stopped abruptly when I was interrupted by a high fever. Though brief, it is complete. The intimacy and abbreviation of this music allude to an essence that the songs lyrics speak more directly of. The space left after matter has departed, a stage after the characters have gone, the hollow of some central column, missing."
Grid of Points is out April 27th on Kranky. Listen to "Parking Lot" below and pre-order the special edition LP here:
