2012 two CD set. This is the first CD issue of Grouper's 2011 self released two part album subtitled Dream Loss and Alien Observer, comprised of songs written and recorded over the last four years. A chronological order informs the thematic trajectory of the dual release. Dream Loss is the first album and is a collection of older songs, while Alien Observer is mostly made of newer songs. Each is meant to stand solidly on it's own, and also as a satellite in the other's system, subjects on either side of the water's surface, on either side of a trick mirror; at times reflecting one back to the other, at times looking straight through to the other. Enough has been written about Grouper in the past few years that there is no need to wax poetic here. Suffice it to say that Liz Harris has created an exquisite sonic universe where she is the sole inhabitant, and we should consider it a privilege to listen in.

Though her solo work is quite extensive A I A stands as her most haunting and beautiful album to date. Her vocals blend meticulously with the lo-fi drone-esque type sounds in such a way as to lull you into a dark, solemn, and splendid world that is quite difficult to describe. Not a single moment is wasted on this double album. Truly worth every penny, especially if one enjoys ambient albums and lo-fi production. Or to put it more simply, just really beautiful and creative music.
