from portland, oregon, grouper creates delicate music perfect for late nights. sounding as if surrounded inside a crowd full of sullen angels, liz harris has released her third album dragging a dead deer up a hill on type records. cleared aside from past noise efforts, grouper lightly conveys in the beauty of gentle acoustics, electric piano and layered soft melodies that weave in and out, exposing hidden vulnerabilities within an intense bedroom-recorded atmosphere.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    The lovely sound of my teenage autumn melancholia…a nice place to rest, now and then.
