Here's a video for one of the new Grouper songs, "Hold the Way," directed by Weston Currie. Its black and white, strobe-light quality is pretty eerie, and so's the song: Liz Harris starts with a ghostly choir, jarred by a static-y voice, then a peaceful, vibrating electric piano plays a soothing figure as Harris sings a gentle melody. "Hold the Way" is from Grouper's upcoming
release yet to be determined; probably not a full-length, although it may either be part of an upcoming 12" split with Roy Montgomery, or a standalone Grouper EP called Vessel
, or both, or neither.
