90% Drowned in Sound Harris is one of those unique songwriters who has the ability to enter the room as you listen to her music.
80% New Musical Express For anyone requiring hints about how Kanye West’s new material might sound, Grouper’s ‘Grid of Points’ could provide the answer.
80% The Line of Best Fit
80% Exclaim! Music Grouper Grid of Points By Tom Beedham Published Apr 23, 2018 8 Although organic implements like acoustic guitar and piano have long figured prominently in the music Liz Harris has recorded as Grouper, they've often been tangled up in drones so diffuse with effects and tape loops that it's difficult to tell where ends and beginning occur.
80% The Skinny It can feel as if Harris is singing, magically, from nowhere and everywhere simultaneously, and yet doesn’t think twice about ending a song abruptly, with the noise of a passing train ripping through the centre of yet another gorgeous melody as on closer Breathing.
80% Pop Matters Now, on her latest record, Grid of Points, Harris continues to tread the path she set out on with Ruins.
80% Resident Advisor She's amassed a cult following over the course of ten solo studio albums and various shorter projects, with fans that hang on to her every reverberation.
80% The 405 Over the course of her career, Liz Harris' music has grown more diffuse, almost as if the passing of time has been gradually wearing away at its foundation.
70% Soundblab The intimacy and abbreviation of this music allude to an essence that the songs' lyrics speak more directly of.
70% Music OMH The origins of the 11th Grouper album Grid Of Points lie in the period straight after its predecessor Ruins was written and recorded.
60% Loud & Quiet The passing of an airplane at the end of ‘Breathing’ is a jolt out of the spell she had over us, which could be a powerful ending, emphasising the album’s quietness.
59% Earbuddy However, you might also have been one of the listeners enchanted by Liz Harris’s “unplugged” piano album.
