Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill, first released in 2008, mostly forgoes the drones and minimalist experiments of her other work and focuses on Harris' voice and strummed guitar. It's her "folk" record, in a way, even though it slots in easily next to her more drawn-out and noisy releases. It is also her best album, a classic of subtly devastating songwriting (it's also an album Pitchfork initially underrated). Grouper's most obvious contemporary is Julianna Barwick, but while the latter's music has a certain formality and sense of communal ritual, Grouper is disconcertingly interior, as if you're listening in on something private.

Grouper is the solo project of American musician, artist and producer Liz Harris. She has released material on her own label and other independent labels since 2005. Grouper released the critically acclaimed Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill in 2008, followed by five more records, including a two-part album, A I A, and the piano-led album Ruins. Her eleventh album, Grid of Points, was released in 2018.

When dealing with someone as cryptic and perpetually uncertain as ambient musician Liz "Grouper" Harris, it would be too easy to simply write off The Man Who Died In His Boat as a collection of B-sides from her 2007 breakout Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill. Not to fault such a concept to begin with; the songs present here almost feel like they came from a completely separate album, with only occasional call-backs to compositions that would make the final cut and beyond

Grouper is Liz Harris, a Portland-based artist who makes folk-influenced drone music using little more than a guitar and her own voice. Harris has had a prolific release schedule since her debut in 2005, and particularly so as of late: she released a two-part album in 2011, and earlier this year collaborated with Tiny Vipers under the name Mirroring. But arguably her most notable record so far is Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill, which came out on Type in 2008. The Man Who Died In His Boat collects 11 unreleased songs that were recorded during this same period. The album will come out on American experimental label Kranky. Kranky will release The Man Who Died In His Boat on February 4th, 2013.

What Harris conjured up was the image of this disastrous storm and the instant of her retreat. There's no doubting what Harris battled against on Dead Deer because it was there for a moment, and then it was gone.

The LP jacket is a heavyweight black card-stock with a black graphic letterpress printed on front. The back of the jacket has the word "Grouper" and some waves painted in clear shellac.
