While the record might begin unassumingly enough with the downplayed 'Dragging the Streets', 'I Saw A Ray' greets us with a volcanic slither of noise and calloused harmony. This deeply buried melancholy transports us through the album, and while the noise subsides to make way for Liz's familiar layered vocal loops and subtle, withdrawn songs, the character and texture is still one of distortion and fragmentation as opposed to the occasional overt prettiness exhibited on 'Alien Observer'.

As Liz mentioned in the run-up to this ambitious double release, the albums are two very separate works, yet somehow feed off each other when heard together. It's a harrowing trip, but one laced with beauty, restraint and that unquantifiable magic that seems to grace mostly anything Liz Harris touches.

Play Gift This Product Genres Grouper ’s 2011 LP A A: Dreamless gets reissued by Cranky. This is a set of brooding dreamstate-rock from the one born Liz Harris.

We do this with social media, marketing, and analytics partners (who may have their own information they’ve collected). Despite working in an increasingly rich and crowded ambient-pop field, Grouper's Liz Harris continues to own her distinctive sound on these LPs.

The tools Liz Harris uses to make music as Grouper tend to be pretty basic: piano, guitar, synths, drones, hiss, and lots of reverb. Part of the distinctiveness can be traced to Harris' voice, which floats above the music and can sound delicate and shrouded and mist and can also evince an approachable earthiness.

Particularly on Alien Observer, she layers her voice in a way that occasionally brings to mind Julianna Barwick, but Harris sounds comparatively distant and less immersive. On “Vapor Trails” and “She Loves Me That Way” the record turns a few shades darker, but a twinkling music box melody that opens “Mary, on the Wall (Second Heart Tone)” feels like awakening from an uneasy sleep, groggy and halfway hallucinating as you re-enter the world.

The closing “Come Softly (For Daniel D)” feels like a proper conclusion, as Harris' naked voice over a skeletal keyboard figure gradually disappear over the horizon. Dreamless is heavier on the distortion and EQ, and with an atmosphere that alternates between the Missy, open drift of the stratosphere with the thick, all-encompassing immersion of the ocean floor.

“I Saw a Ray” flirts with noise music, with a bit of industrial grind added to the held tones, while “Soul Eraser” seems to crumble into dust and regenerate itself simultaneously. But placed on a continuum, these records highlight how 2008's luminous Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill, her last full-length album, was an unusual entry in the Grouper catalog.

That record was built almost exclusively with acoustic guitar and voice, and the songs had an ancient air to them, like they'd been carved into petrified wood with a hammer and chisel. A A: Dreamless is the sixth studio album by American musician Liz Harris under the stage name Grouper.

It is the first of her two-part album series A I A, released on April 11, 2011, on Yellow Electric. Professional ratingsReview scoresSourceRating Pitchfork 7.7/10 1.

The tools Liz Harris uses to make music as Grouper tend to be pretty basic: piano, guitar, synths, drones, hiss, and lots of reverb. If you've been following along with the twists and turns of noisy ambient music these last few years, this collection of elements may sound familiar, possibly bordering on cliché.

Particularly on Alien Observer, she layers her voice in a way that occasionally brings to mind Julianna Barwick, but Harris sounds comparatively distant and less immersive. The other aspect that sets Grouper apart is an approach to sound that feels somehow both cruder and more sophisticated than the majority of the lo-fi crop.

This music feels both spacey and expansive and also oddly intimate and grounded, the work of someone who has mastered her tools and knows how to get the most out of them. This music doesn't sound like it was built from mistakes or thrown together, it seems precisely ordered and arranged even while it's often muffled and warmly and distorted.
