The latest slice of hiss-drenched production to come from Portland’s Grouper is a cover of sorts, although we couldn’t fault you for having no idea what song was being reimagined here solely based on listening to the track. Really, who is to say exactly what is happening beneath the massive layers of slow-moving noise on Grouper’s version of Dead Moon’s “Demona?” Fortunately, the reward here is not in the details, but instead in the lush, textured sonics that culminate from the fuzzed-to-11 guitars, billowing pads, and soft, expansive vocals, which are so overcome with reverb that they barely reach our ears. This cover is available as part of the four-track 7″ which comes with the latest edition of the art/culture-centric Yeti Magazine. (via FADER)
