Grouper 'Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill' LP

* 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.” SputnikTracklisting:
