The 12th full-length by Pacific Northwest artist Liz Harris aka Grouper is a collection of songs spanning fifteen years. She characterizes Shade as an album about respite, and the coast, poetically and literally. How one frames themselves in a landscape, how in turn it frames themselves; memories and experiences carried forward mapping a connection to place-« an ode to blue / what lives in shade. » Songs touch on loss, flaws, hiding places, love. Deep connections to the Bay Area, and the North Coast, with it’s unique moods of solitude, beauty, and isolation-a place described and transformed by the chaos and power of river-mouth, wild maritime storms, columns of mist that rise up unexpectedly on the road at night. Portions were recorded on Mount Tamalpais during a self-made residency years back, other pieces made longer ago in Portland, while the rest were tracked during more recent sessions in Astoria.Throughout, Harris threads a hidden radiant language of voice, disquiet, and guitar, framed by open space and the sense of being far away-« Echoing a lighthouse, burying the faults of being human / Into things that we project upon the sky at night. »
