mirrorring (grouper & tiny vipers) - Foreign Body (Vinyl Edition)
Amazing album of diffuse, DIY drone-pop from two doyennes in the field: Liz 'Grouper' Harris and Jesy 'Tiny Vipers' Fortino. The material featured on Foreign Body is every bit as subdued as its creators' respective solo work, but the collaboration is more than sum of its parts: Harris's searching, poetic command of reverb is as distinctive and quietly overwhelming as ever, and she sculpts gorgeously murky, sylvan atmospheres for Fortino to set her more traditionally folk-influenced vocal performances and finger-picked guitar lines in. The song-based compositions are incredibly affecting, but arguably the duo soar highest when exploring more pensive instrumental shades, as on 'Cliffs' and 'Mirror Of Our Sleeping', the latter most strongly reminiscent of the minimalist direction Harris has been taking Grouper has been taking recently, with an elegiac drift that reminds us of both David Sylvian's ambient work and Aphex's SAW II. Really, it's that good: a majestic work from two artists at the top of their game.
