recorded on a simple 4-track, 'Ruins' is a less fuzzy, starker piano based album from Liz Harris that is as consistently strong, melodic & quietly moving as we've come to expect from her.
all the hallmarks of a Grouper album are still present, including multi-tracked vocals, haunting piano parts & ambient noises. Made in a residency in Portugal, Harris mentions that the album is a nod to her daily walk "through the ruins of several old estates & a small village. The songs clearly echo the peaceful & calm environment that inspired them, except for the bookending tracks perhaps. 'made
