Stars Of The Lid Vinyl, CD & tapes from Norman Records

Adam Wiltzie and the fantastically named Brian McBride are two of drone’s best-loved boys. Their final two records, ‘The Tired Sounds’ plus ‘And The Refinement of Their Decline’, are known for their swelling, soothing instrumentation, offering the genre as outstretched arms. Along with making ear balm, they released a slew of esoteric ambient records, full of dissonant texture, beguiling stringwork and hilarious song titles. Their Kranky-approved discography is well-worth digging into, as their layers of processed instrumentation have meant many different things over the years.

Salero: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

New heart-stompers from Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie. Need I say more, need I describe the content of Salero to you, a film I haven’t seen? I don’t feel like making up a fake synopsis on a day as destitute as this so I’ll just listen to this soundtrack from Stars of the Lid and ...view item »
