The forthcoming eight-track Ruins LP from Liz Harris (a.k.a. Grouper) is now available to stream in full. Said to have been recorded during Harris' time living in Aljezur, Portugal (circa 2011), Ruins is described as one of Grouper's more song-based albums, with most all of the record's compositions built from muffled piano chords and layers of the artist's airy voice, which can appear to be both haunting and calming in the same breath.

Set to be released on October 31 via Kranky, Grouper's forthcoming Ruins album can be heard in its entirety here via NPR.
