Water People 7" (Single)
Released: Aug 2011
Grouper's music has always been aquatic. But where the Portland musician's looping pedals once rumbled like the stones in a muddy creek bed, "Water People" drifts through cool, limpid waters. Where once there was only reverb and hum, her guitar-picking now takes a definitive shape, and you can even (almost) make out the words, if you lean in. It's still a profoundly lonesome sound, just clearer and sweeter, like echoes of Low wafting up from the bottom of a cistern.
