GrouperGrouper

Liz Harris - a.k.a. Grouper - creates pop songs where the structure is merely hinted at, making it difficult to decide whether her amorphous drones resemble songs or visa versa. On earlier releases, she was awash in reverb, disguising much of her tunes' shapes, hiding melody in trance. [Grouper's 2008 release] Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill continues the minimal whisperings of past LPs, but also features strummed acoustic guitar. Lots of it." [Dusted]
Grouper also recently released a split 7" with City Center. Not surprisingly, City Center is who Grouper played with at Silent Barn in Brooklyn on Sunday. In town from Portland, Grouper plays one more NYC show tonight/Monday at Knitting Factory - it's the WNYU party that Pylon is headlining.

Grouper will also be back in town to play the New Museum on February 13th. Stay tuned for more details. WNYU flyer and a video below...

How was the Silent Barn show?

As a young boy growing up in the Florida Keys, I would often catch Grouper using mangrove shrimp as bait. Many times the powerful fish would break my 25lb test line. When I would land the fish, I would gut it and take it home to eat. My family prepared it many different ways, but my favorite was blackened on a hot coal hibachi grill.

Groupers are teleosts, typically having a stout body and a large mouth. They are not built for long-distance fast swimming. They can be quite large, and lengths over a meter and weights up to 100 kg are not uncommon, though obviously in such a large group species vary considerably. They swallow prey rather than biting pieces off it. They do not have much tooth on the edges of their jaws, but they have heavy crushing tooth plates inside the pharynx. They habitually eat fish, octopus, crab, and lobster. They lie in wait, rather than chasing in open water. According to the film-maker Graham Ferreira, there is at least one record, from Mozambique, of a human being killed by one of these fish.

I like what they're trying to do, really, but honestly can't get through an entire song.

i saw them them a few years ago and it was quite boring but their new jams are quite good

Saw the set last night at the Tap Room. The room was about half full, but it seemed like everyone was talking throughout the set and half of the crowd were bro's drinking PBR's. Totally lame crowd.
The other problem was the Grouper was just not very good. Electric guitar with effects over an ethereal voice. Yawn. Booooring as hell.

Tie dye is important to those who wants a new look in spite of the same wardrobe (lol). I wonder if this workshop can feature the whole scenario of the event so those who failed to attend may somehow attend next. Just remember, not all fabrics can be tie dyed. Cotton is an excellent choice.

Very oft the custom sociology essays play very big role in people's life and almost every one student has a practice of research papers buying. Hence, it is a general issue for all students.
