Grouper once said releasing an album was like trying to secretly sink a heavy object in a lake: Find a quiet corner, gently slip it under the surface, watch the ripples for a moment, and steal away. She was referring to her end of the process-the immediate aftermath of putting one’s work into the world-but the analogy works the other way around, too. Listening to a Grouper record, meaning generally evades me, or at least the kind I can articulate does; I grasp at an expression of exactly what a song is about as it slips through my fingers like water. The seven songs on Grid of Points, the latest album from Liz Harris, were written and recorded in a week and a half during a residency in the wide-open space of Ucross, Wyoming in 2014. She describes the process being abruptly halted by sickness, like a sign from the world that the album was complete despite its slightness. Or rather, because of its slightness.

Her eleventh album, Grid of Points, was released in 2018. Grouper has collaborated with a number of other artists, including Xiu Xiu, Tiny Vipers (Mirrorring), Roy Montgomery, The Bug, Lawrence English (Slow Walkers), and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma (Raum). Harris’ first album was 2005’s Grouper, a self-released full-length CD-R, followed later that year by Way Their Crept on Free Porcupine (re-released in 2007 on Type Records). In 2006 she released a single (He Knows), one album, called Wide, and a collaboration with Xiu Xiu entitled Creepshow. In 2008 she released Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill.

Grid of Points is the eleventh studio album by Grouper, the stage name of American musician Liz Harris. It was released in the United States on April 27, 2018 on Kranky. In a statement accompanying the announcement of the album's release, Liz Harris described its recording process: The short length of the album initially worried the label, who thought listeners would feel shortcharged. It just happens to be 22 minutes.

On Grid of Points, Grouper uses impressionistic vocals and piano like carbon paper to trace outlines of vast negative spaces in which listeners can dwell and unfurl their own thoughts while being prompted by whatever obfuscated lyrics they can decipher. The relative brevity and sparseness of the album, allied to the fact that it largely extends ideas laid down earlier in Harris’s career, won’t see Grid Of Points talked of in the same elevated way as some of her other work.

Grid Of Points follows the 2015 debut album from Harris’s band Helen, but is her first under the Grouper moniker since 2014’s Ruins. In the past years she’s released several one-off singles including ‘Children’ and the Paradise Valley 7″. Grid Of Points is a set of songs for piano and voice. I wrote these songs over a week and a half; they stopped abruptly when I was interrupted by a high fever. Though brief, it is complete, Harris says in a statement

Listen free to Grouper – Grid of Points (The Races, Parking Lot and more). Not long after recording her 10th album, Ruins, Liz Harris traveled to Wyoming to work on art and record music. She found herself drawn towards the pairing of skeletal piano phrasing with spare, rich bursts of vocal harmony. A series of stark songs emerged, minimal and vulnerable, woven with emotive silences. Inspired by "the idea that something is missing or cold," the pieces float and fade like vignettes, implying as much as they reveal
