On her tenth album, 2014’s ‘Ruins’, Liz Harris boldly stripped away some vast textures and restless energy that typified her music to deliver a collection of desolate piano pieces, carried by a whisper. It offers those same tender, minimal piano pieces, using a clever blending of intimacy and distance.
On ‘Parking Lot’, you can hear the hissing vigilance as she moves her tongue to sing the word ‘inside’. ‘Grid of Points’ is undoubtedly vaster sounding than ‘Ruins’, the thick reverb allowing Harris’ voice to ring on and fade into piano notes.
The ascending piano riff on ‘Birthday Song’ is particularly familiar, like a lesser take on what was wistfulness captured on ‘Holding’ from ‘Ruins’. Here, it feels forced, and it’s even less forgiving when the traffic noise continues for another two minutes, making up a good bulk of the track.
Fans of Grouper ’s songwriting will find gorgeous moments to wrap themselves up in, but they’re more fleeting than the long-lasting wistfulness of the album it pulls so heavily from.

Oregon-based Liz Harris, aka Grouper, embarks on a lonely journey in her new track “Holding.” Just accompanied by her billowing vocals and down-trodden piano, Grouper's new single almost levitates at the lowest heights possible.
Barely surfacing here and there to breathe, Harris' voice whispers the almost unintelligible lyrics. Picturesque images of leaves falling and caressing the ground, tree branches swaying, lake water shimmering with the light -- this is the kind of imagery that Grouper is able to create with such a simple composition.

The manipulation of the sound itself is also quite masterful, treading a thin line between sound decomposition and feedback that brings a layer of depth and surrealist to the LPs. The first of this double release, Dream Loss seems much more focused with the noisier, more unhinged aspects of Grouper's sonic palette. This half of the release might not be as universal as its counterpart, but it is still breathtakingly beautiful and a chilling sonic experience.
In my opinion both of the A A albums are a massive evolution over Dragging a Dead Deer up a Hill, which is something I say as a very big admirer of that work. Liz Harris is reaching for something darker and more menacing here, while simultaneously taking the emotional depth and dreaminess of her music to even higher levels. A similar musical aesthetic can be found on Dream Loss' counterpart, “Alien Observer”, but the overall vibe is markedly different here.
If Alien Observer is akin to floating in space, then Dream Loss is something like being stalked by the creature that's set loose on Ripley's ship. Liz Harris, aka Grouper, has announced the new album Grid Of Points on Cranky.
Today you can hear the first single, the tender, piano-led ‘Parking Lot’. Grid Of Points follows the 2015 debut album from Harris’s band Helen, but is her first under the Grouper moniker since 2014’s Ruins.
In the past years she’s released several one-off singles including ‘Children’ and the Paradise Valley 7. I wrote these songs over a week and a half; they stopped abruptly when I was interrupted by a high fever.
Below target level in the Gulf of Mexico and fishing rate promotes population growth. Fishing gear used to harvest red snapper has minimal impacts on habitat.
Regulations require modified fishing gear to reduce by catch. Release techniques improve the chance of survival of unintentionally caught fish.
Regulations are in place to ensure that the combined commercial and recreational catches are low enough to prevent overfishing. Spawning biomass has generally been increasing since the mid-1990s, but continues to be well below the target level (currently at 22 percent).
It will take time for older, more fertile fish to rebuild; however, the numbers of red snapper predicted by the assessment are the highest on record since the 1970s. They have a long triangular face with the upper part sloping more strongly than the lower.
Red snapper grow at a moderate rate, and may reach 40 inches long and 50 pounds. Red snapper feed on fish, shrimp, crab, worms, cephalopods (octopus or squid), and some plankton (tiny floating plants and animals).
Young red snapper are food for the large carnivorous fish that share their habitat, such as jacks, groupers, sharks, barracudas, and morays. A minimum size limit protects the spawning stock and juveniles.

We counted half a dozen of them on our newest wreck, the M/V Ana Cecilia. Reserve your spot to dive with the groupers early as our trips are filling fast.
It’s friendly demeanor and curiosity gets you within arms reach of it many times. Now multiply this encounter by sixty plus and you are experiencing the best Goliath grouper diving anywhere in the world.
Palm Beach, Florida is hands down the best place to be if you want to see these leviathans in all their splendor. The wrecks in Palm Beach are the perfect hangout for these behemoth fish.
Today’s morning trip included a stop at this great series of wrecks in search of the Goliath groupers. Easily outweighing and almost out sizing the divers, these large sea bass (the largest of their kind in the world) are actually quite timid.
Chase them and you’ll be doing nothing more than getting tail shots of these fish and running low on your air supply quickly. Sitting back and letting their curiosity get the better of them is the best recipe for those closeup shots.
Sea turtles, rays, and countless fish live around these wrecks. With today’s ideal conditions and 3-4 dozen Goliath groupers to keep us in a constant state of awe, it is easy to understand why a few of us decided to do a second dive on the same wreck while the other divers were at a nearby reef.
If you want to dive with Goliath groupers then look no further than Palm Beach, Florida. If the photos from today’s dive don’t convince you, then make sure to check out the recent article written in the National Geographic Magazine about the Goliath groupers.
