* -I held my breath and stared at them until they parted the air around me like a curtain. 

* This is a new reissue of Grouperʼs breakthrough 2008 album which has been out of print on all physical formats for the last few years. 

* Press quotes for Dragging a Dead Deer...: 

“Thereʼs a deeply meditative, almost spiritual beauty to these tracks; a melancholy thatʼs simultaneously strangely hopeful.” Drowned in Sound 

“This remarkable album is actually what I personally always wanted 4AD records to sound like, only they never quite delivered the hazy pleasures their beautiful sleeve art promised.” Pitchfork [8.2]

* “A psych-folk bent for harmonic discord and atmospheric dread finds something forever sinister lodged at the album's heart: thekind of beauty that makes sailors run aground.” Mojo

“More than just a pretty acoustic record, Harris, through Grouper, has created a startlingly vivid and brooding shoegaze gem that works in spite of its length and first impressions.” Sputnik
