Grouper – “The Man Who Died In His Boat”
Along with the welcome news that Grouper's out-of-print masterpiece Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill -- one of our favorite albums of the last decade or so -- will see its fourth pressing early next year courtesy of Kranky comes word that Grouper will also release a new record called The Man Who Died In His Boat, an LP of unreleased material from the Dragging era. We just happened upon the stunning title track that's apparently been floating around in mp3 form for a few years, and it has us very psyched for the record. The Man Who Died In His Boat is out on February 4 via Kranky. 2013 should be a good one.
