Grid of Points is the eleventh studio album by Grouper, the stage name of American musician Liz Harris. It was released in the United States on April 27, 2018 on Kranky. In a statement accompanying the announcement of the album's release, Liz Harris described its recording process: The short length of the album initially worried the label, who thought listeners would feel shortcharged. It just happens to be 22 minutes.

Grouper once said releasing an album was like trying to secretly sink a heavy object in a lake: Find a quiet corner, gently slip it under the surface, watch the ripples for a moment, and steal away. She was referring to her end of the process-the immediate aftermath of putting one’s work into the world-but the analogy works the other way around, too. Listening to a Grouper record, meaning generally evades me, or at least the kind I can articulate does; I grasp at an expression of exactly what a song is about as it slips through my fingers like water. The seven songs on Grid of Points, the latest album from Liz Harris, were written and recorded in a week and a half during a residency in the wide-open space of Ucross, Wyoming in 2014. She describes the process being abruptly halted by sickness, like a sign from the world that the album was complete despite its slightness. Or rather, because of its slightness.

Grid Of Points follows the 2015 debut album from Harris’s band Helen, but is her first under the Grouper moniker since 2014’s Ruins. In the past years she’s released several one-off singles including ‘Children’ and the Paradise Valley 7″. Grid Of Points is a set of songs for piano and voice. I wrote these songs over a week and a half; they stopped abruptly when I was interrupted by a high fever. Though brief, it is complete, Harris says in a statement

Grouper's latest album, Grid Of Points, is out next month on Kranky. For the eight-track effort, Grouper, real name Liz Harris, returns to the spare piano and voice songs that defined her previous LP, 2014's Ruins. The label says she recorded Grid Of Points in Wyoming, where she had traveled to work on art and music. I wrote these songs over a week and a half; they stopped abruptly when I was interrupted by a high fever," Harris says. The intimacy and abbreviation of this music allude to an essence.

Listen free to Grouper – Grid of Points (The Races, Parking Lot and more). Not long after recording her 10th album, Ruins, Liz Harris traveled to Wyoming to work on art and record music. She found herself drawn towards the pairing of skeletal piano phrasing with spare, rich bursts of vocal harmony. A series of stark songs emerged, minimal and vulnerable, woven with emotive silences. Inspired by "the idea that something is missing or cold," the pieces float and fade like vignettes, implying as much as they reveal
