Grouper, Pimmon & Seaworthy
In what should turn out to be one of the best live music nights of 2009, Preservation will present a show from US artist Grouper in Sydney on March 6.
The project for Portland, Oregon’s Liz Harris, Grouper has steadily built incredible international acclaim for her mesmerising music, culminating in reaching both Pitchfork and The Wire’s Top 50 albums for 2008 with her most recent full-length, “Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill”.
Often compared to classic 4AD dream-pop acts – especially the Cocteau Twins – the trance-like melodies and narcotic voice in a Grouper song swirl both prettily and mysteriously in their pastoral, psychedelic way. Otherworldly and blissful, this one-off, intimate show will be special.
Making that more so will be a rare performance from Sydney’s sublime electronic composer Pimmon, set to release his new, long-awaited album Smudge Another Yesterday in April, with Seaworthy also adding their own delicate beauty to the evening.
The night takes place Friday March 6 at Serial Space, 33 Wellington Street, Chippendale from 8pm. Entry is 12 dollars.
