Grouper - Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill
I first heard some talk about this album and downloaded it because frankly I liked the cover art. I knew it was supposed to be rather mellow music but that was about all I knew. One night I was sick of listening to happy hardcore and had a bit of a headache so I decided to put this on. I was amazed at how beautiful this album was. Incredibly relaxing and calming, it was perfect for what I needed. I then decided to leave the album on repeat and go to sleep, which worked wonderfully as well.
This album is extremely mellow soft acoustic ambient music with a nice dose of melancholy and even some shoegaze. Really though it's just beautiful music, for once genres fail to describe this album I feel. Right from the first track, Disengaged, I was hooked.
