When we pointed you toward two new Grouper songs, I said it sounded like Liz Harris recorded “Vessel” and “Hold The Way” with the fall chill in a dark Northwestern forest as her backing band. This shadowy, strobed black and white video by Weston Currie seconds that emotion, though in a creeper way than I’d been imagining. Strikingly beautiful, haunted stuff. Think of it as romantic Halloween viewing. (And, to maintain a historical continuum, don’t forget Harris’ skeletal corpsepaint.)
Look for Vessel, which is ostensibly out this winter. Perfect timing.
