Music: Grouper – Vital

Here’s another one of those tracks that y’all are likely getting pelted with all over the Internet, but I love it so much that I have no other recourse but to share it with you here. It’s a track from the new album by Grouper – The Man Who Died In His Boat – coming into the world of February 4th, 2013 via Kranky Records. The hallmarks of Liz Harris’ musical ideas are there: reverb upon reverb, slow waves of melody washing up on the beach. This time around it sounds like she’s letting her voice come to the fore, pushing aside the clouds of sound at last. I need to listen to the rest of the album to find out if that clarity runs through the whole thing, but I don’t know when I’ll be able to move past this one track.
