SAB035 | DL, 7" Single

Grouper / Pumice

Tour Single

Grouper (Liz Harris) and Pumice (Stefan Neville) toured New Zealand together in March 2009. To commemorate this event, we’ve released a tour 7″ single (in conjunction with the artists themselves). Grouper’s contribution, ‘Rising Height,’ is a gorgeous example of her elongated Kendra Smith-esque fuzzy drone pop. Pumice includes ‘Twin Neck Double Kick Bum Chin,’ a new song that could’ve fit well on his brilliant 2008 effort Quo. Each song is exclusive to this release.
