Grouper’s latest video from their A I A double LP is a horror show of partially realized fears, part Ed Emscwiller, part Ingmar Bergman. The song starts off as experimental sound collage with unexpected, seemingly indeterminate punctuations before drifting off into the buzzing hazy angelic coos we’ve come to expect from Liz Harris. A rare beautific blend of sound and vision.
