dragging a dead deer up a hill

grouper - dragging a dead deer up a hill (2008)

>>not only does it have one creepy mofo of a cover or is it baptised with the best album title ever, "dragging a dead deer up a hill" is by far my definite go-to when i feel like listening to pleasant sounding melodies without really wanting to make the effort of listening to something// a total no-brainer while being perplexingly intricate, i love this album

//perfect if you'll be spending the first mega snow storm (in canada anyway) in bed this morning
