Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill is ethereal and hazy, but never overly so. Two songs reference sleep in their titles, three water. Some strong-ass melodies and actual songs always lurked deep inside- or perhaps underneath- Grouper's music, but you had to work to hear them underneath layers of sonic muck. Here, those elements are more prominent, and there's something simple and beautiful but also a little bit obscure going on. Released June 10, 2008. Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill Tracklist.

Kind of obnoxious that Fishing Bird doesn’t start out Side B like the other pressings...it fits much better as an opener.
I too am happy with this pressing for the most part and love this record. Cleaned with Audio Desk System Pro yet still some pops, like on the start of Tidal Wave. But great record.
Lots of pops. Noisy press, really detracts from the quiet parts. Bummer.
This pressing is fantastic! Really rich and warm, as well as having almost no surface noise. Unless you can get your hands on one of the limited edition copies, this record is a must-have for Grouper fans or anyone interested in a beautiful blend of folk, drone, and ambient.

gorgeous. Been enchanted with this one since it came out. Still my favorite work by liz.
The kranky repress sounds incredible. Really really happy with it!
I have the repress from Kranky, 2013 - and my copy also plays, and sounds fantastic.
Been dying for the reissue for ages, and am really happy it finally happened. A little bummed at the quality of the pressing though.
Never bought this version because the cover is black and white instead of color like the original version on Type.
What's wrong with it? Mine plays just fine and sounds really good.
