Grouper (aka Liz Harris) is releasing an album of previously unreleased tracks via Kranky next month, as part of their 20th anniversary release schedule. The album, titled The Man Who Died In His Boat, contains tracks recorded at the same time as the Grouper record Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill. It's due out on 4 February.

Harris has also recently released two records by Roy Montgomery on her Yellowelectric label, one solo, one by Dadamah, a four piece consisting of Montgomery, Kim Pieters, Janine Stagg and Peter Stapleton. More on Grouper and those releases at Kranky and Yellowelectric.
