artworks-000062165090-vp1fcr-t500x500

Raum is the musical collaboration between Grouper’s Liz Harris and multi-instrumentalist Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, and for anyone familiar with Grouper’s two outstanding LPs, Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill and The Man Who Died In His Boat, it’s a remarkably progressive sound in relation to the organic and reflective tones of her solo LPs. For nearly six minutes, the collaborative duo cover you with sheets of sound to the point you start wondering if you’re still breathing. It’s captivating from beginning to end, with it’s ability to just be and still illicit an emotional response being the song’s best quality.

Event Of Your Leaving, the debut LP from Raum, is set for a 15 November release through Glass, House.
