Portland-based singer-songwriter Liz Harris has unveiled another beautiful song from her forthcoming Grouper record, Ruins.
“The album is a document. A nod to that daily walk. Failed structures. Living in the remains of love. I left the songs the way they came (microwave beep from when power went out after a storm); I hope that the album bears some resemblance to the place that I was in.”
Ruins will be released on October 31 via Kranky.
Montreal-based soft-pop duo Vesuvio Solo, the project of Cameron Maclean and former TOPS bassist Thom Gillies, released their debut full-length debut, Favors, on October 14 through Atelier Ciseaux.
Like TOPS, Ariel Pink and Sean Nicholas Savage, Vesuvio Solo’s sophisticated blend of 80s indebted rock and pop strikes a nice balance between new and old making it exceptionally accessible to listeners unfamiliar with this ever-growing genre.
Watch the video for their slinky new single, Avion.
