Stars Of The Lid
The Tired Sounds of

Repress of Stars of the Lid’s 2001 neo-classical drone album, The Tired Sounds of. The way this album ebbs and flows is unlike much you’ll hear from music. It has far more in common with waves beating against a shore. The glacial pace of its changes suggest a timelessness. It sounds massive, and I feel.. small.

Stars Of The Lid
Gravitational Pull vs The Desire for an Aquatic Life

Gravitational Pull vs. the Desire for an Aquatic Life is, I have to say, a pretty fantastically appropriate title for a Stars of the Lid album. Captures the elemental, slow-moving feel of their drone compositions, not to mention their profound beauty. This is their second album, from 1996, on Kranky Records.

Stars Of The Lid
And Their Refinement Of The Decline

Stars of the Lid's seventh studio album saw a slight hesitation in what appeared to be a progression further into orchestrated ambience. The previous LP's rich, stately tone does make up a lot of the character, but a return to the exploration of non-musical, abstract sonic nuance is where the magic is here, still wonderful in repress.

Stars Of The Lid
The Ballasted Orchestra

Stars Of The Lid’s second (or third depending on how you’re counting) LP gets a timely reissue courtesy of Kranky. The importance of The Ballasted Orchestra continues to grow more than two decades on from its 1997 release. Subsequent milestones such as William Basinski’s The Disintegration Loops and The Caretaker’s An Empty Bliss Beyond This World owe a huge debt to the thousand-yard ambiences here.
