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. ...view item »

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....view item »

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 re...view item »

Brian McBride
The Effective Disconnect (Music Composed for Vanishing of the Bees)

The latest installment of McBride's surprising move from prolific Fulham goal poacher to ambient pioneer extra-ordinaire is this stunning soundtrack to the documentary "Vanishing of the Bees". I joke of course, this Brian McBride has long been known as one half of consistently appealing minimalist beauty-drone merchants Stars of the Lid. There r...view item »

Sleepingdog
With Our Heads in the Clouds and Our Hearts in the Fields

A collaboration between Belgium base chanteuse Chantal Acda and Adam Wiltzie, the latter famed for his work as one half of droopy Texan ambient masters Stars of The Lid. The typically long and some may say pretentious title marks this out as one of those certain to have appeal amongst the Sigur Ros brigade. The music is heartfelt, swooning at ti...view item »

Salero: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

The expansive soundtrack to the 2015 film Salero, a documentary about Bolivia's lithium reserves. Inspired by director Mike Plunkett's stunning cinematography, composer Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid/A Winged Victory For the Sullen) delivers a gorgeous&n...view item »

Stars Of The Lid
Carte De Viste SOTL 2008

Nice to hear John Peel sampled on a Stars of the Lid track. Ant says he's probably been sampled more than James Brown which is quite amusing. This here thing is a tour CD, numbering 9 tracks which is constructed from out-takes & previously unreleased (thought they were the same thing.....) plus a really obscure piece from a '97 era split 12&quo...view item »

Stars Of The Lid
Avec Laudenum

This is easily the most fun and beautiful record of theirs to listen to. Constant listening happens with it for years and years. Spaced out and heady with the greatest fringe on top! ...view item »
