100 gecs - 1000 gecs
May 31, 2019
Critic Score

4 reviews
Even at their most accessible, 100 gecs sound like a bunch of fireworks stuffed into a fax machine, or human beings singing in the key of dial-up. They traffic in pure and uncut absurdity, but even their most outrageous moments radiate a strange sincerity—the kind that could only come from two denizens of a perpetually logged-on generation.

Nivhek - After its own death / Walking in a spiral towards the house
February 8, 2019
Critic Score
78
5 reviews

The new project from Grouper’s Liz Harris contains some of her most beguiling work. Spread across two long, contrasting ambient compositions, her music remains in an enigmatic class of her own.
