Oregon-based musician Liz Harris has announced the 12th album under her moniker Grouper. The new LP, Shade, will be released in October on Kranky. She has pushed a new single “unclean mind” with the announcement.
Portions were recorded on Mount Tamalpais during a self-made residency years back, while other pieces made longer ago in Portland and the rest were tracked during more recent sessions in Astoria. It covers “loss, flaws, hiding places and love," while drawing influences from the Bay Area and Oregon's coast.
She released her last Grouper album, Grid of Points, in 2018.
Pre-orders for Shade are currently available at Kranky’s website and Grouper’s Bandcamp page
