Grouper’s Liz Harris released a new double album as Nihvek (listen)


Grouper’s Liz Harris has just released a new double album under the name Nivhek and titled After its own death / Walking in a spiral towards the house. It’s comprised of four, side-long compositions and here’s more about it:

Opaque assemblages of Mellotron, guitar, field recordings, tapes, and broken FX pedals by Pacific Northwest musician Liz Harris, created during and after two contrasting residencies in the Azores, Portugal and Murmansk, Russia, combined with pieces made at home in Astoria, Oregon. The collection’s unique dual design functions as a forked path, existing independently of one another but with roots intertwined. She cites her score for Hypnosis Display as a compositional reference point, inspired by “interior mnemonic device landscapes,” and “curiosity around a sadness.”

In pacing, palette, and poignancy, these sides rank among Harris’ most stark, primordial work: fragile, feverish, ominous, and otherworldly.

You can stream the whole album below.

Liz’s most recent Grouper LP is 2018’s Grid of Points.
