3.5 greatBedex | March 12th 19

These are two very pretty songs. The problem is that the reason why I enjoy Grouper's music so much - because it sets moods and ambiances so powerfully- does not function well in a 10 minute two-tracker format. I wanted the record to continue and be the beginning of an album, instead of being an isolated island of music with no context and no conclusion. Still great sounding music, though.rEdit: again I think past bedex was a bit harsh. First track is pretty run of the mill grouper and nothing to marking, but the second is even more subdued and aquatic and I love it. Still hard to rate because of the legnth, but 3.4

The first track features a larger influence on allowing the guitar to create the atmosphere and draw the attention as its reverby notes boom around the space and Liz's voice sort of slides through the fog. The second track essentially the opposite, turning down the guitar to allow her voice to take center stage. I think her voice works better in this style when it's downplayed more in the mix, making "Water People" the better track. While neither are bad, "Moving Machine" leaves me a little bit underwhelmed. 3.3/5?
