The album consists of outtakes from the previous several years, when she was in the process of recording Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill. A photograph of Harris' mother is featured on the cover art.
In a press release, Harris explained the title The Man Who Died in Airboat : When I was a teenager the wreckage of a sailboat washed up on the shore of Agate Beach.
The remains of the vessel weren't removed for several days. I walked down with my father to peer inside the boat cabin.
Maps, coffee cups and clothing were strewn around inside. I remember looking only briefly, wilted by the feeling that I was violating some remnant of this man's presence by witnessing the evidence of its failure.
Speaking of the main protagonist implied in the title of the album, Drowned in Sound columnist Tim Peyton writes: “The mysterious pathos of this incident suits Grouper well. As Harris explains, 'the boat never crashed or capsized... (it) just slipped off somehow.

Friday marks the anniversary of Saint Maximilian Kobe's death. It's been 79 years since the Franciscan Friar was killed after offering his life in place for another man at Auschwitz.
According to the Auschwitz Memorial, Kobe had heard a man pleading with SS guards to let him live, after being sentenced to death by starvation. Since his death in 1941, Kobe has been honored a number of times by the Catholic Church.
He called Freemasons “an organized clique of fanatical Jews who want to destroy the church” in the magazine's first issue in 1926. Other accounts published in the magazine suggest he may have been more moderate and was not as prejudiced against Jews as his early writings appear.
By many accounts of Kobe's time in the “hunger bunker,” the Friar sang hymns and said prayers with the other men he was sentenced to death with. According to The New York Times, Kobe was canonized as a saint by Pope John Paul II.
“The tragic fate of so many Jews destroyed without pity in the concentration camps has already been condemned, firmly and irrevocably, by the conscience of humanity,” he said. He is the patron saint of drug addicts, imprisoned people, journalists, the pro-life movement, and more.
Francisco Gajowniczek, the man that Kobe had stood in for, survived the Holocaust and died in Brief in 1995. Upon his death, The New York Times reported that Gajowniczek had spent over five years in Auschwitz and was never reunited with his sons, who were killed during a bombardment in 1945.

With bowed heads and tear-filled eyes, a crowd gathered in the parking lot of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Trenton on Monday evening to pray for their priest, the Rev.
Stephen Rooney, and parishioner Robert Chile's, both of whom went missing the night before when their boat capsized on the Detroit River. The search-and-rescue effort turned into a recovery mission Monday, with divers searching the tangles of weeds on the river floor for Rooney, 66, an Irish immigrant who served several parishes in the Archdiocese of Detroit in the last three decades, and for Chile's, 52, of Gross Mile, who had already lost so much.
“It is just so tragic and shocking and sad that as a parish, we just needed to get together,” said Len Cheek, 53, of Trenton. Rooney was a beacon for many since he came to the city in 2018 to lead the church and its parish school, Cheek said.
Her body was later found in the water near the boathouse of their home on East River Road. The couple had three children, and the family grew closer to Rooney in the aftermath of Christine Chile's' death, said the Rev.
Marc Swarovski, pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Gross Mile. “He was a wonderful role model as a Christian, and he dedicated his entire life to the service of other people,” said Gehrig, 63, who also is the Monroe County prosecutor.
Mr. Chile's and his family were members of St. Joseph Church, and Father Rooney was ministering to them in their horrible grief. Renee Darrow, 56, of Monroe described the boat trip as Rooney's “final act of mercy on this Earth.
In all, nine adults and five children were on the boat when it capsized Sunday evening at about 7:30 p.m. after hitting a wake off Stone Island near Gross Mile, police said. Anne de Detroit Basilica, said Bishop Gerard Batters by, who led the Monday night vigil outside St. Joseph Parish.
Rosanne was released from an area hospital Monday and “was banged up, but he's OK. ... Bewildered is how he's feeling.” Rooney was born in Belfast, Ireland, and served as a monk before becoming ordained as a priest, Batters by said.
Batters by came to the vigil to support and minister to the people of Rooney's church, the Chile's family and others who loved them, and to share with them the message of the Prophet Nehemiah: “Rejoicing is our strength. Molly Gehrig, 63, of Monroe said Rooney's earlier years as a monk prepared him well for priesthood.
Jim Common, pastor of St. Lucy Catholic Church in St. Clair Shores, sat on the steps of St. Joseph's, drawing comfort from the beads of the rosary slipping through his fingers. “Stephen has friends everywhere,' said Common, who was part of a priest fraternity prayer group with Rooney.
“He's been assigned to so many parishes here in the southern part of the diocese, I don't think you can go anywhere from Trenton to the Ohio line where people don't know him and love him. He said the priest had a knack for solving problems, for strengthening churches that were struggling, and for healing communities.
“The only thing I can conclude is that God must have a real problem up there that he needs Father Rooney to fix,” Darrow said.
