Stars Of The Lid

Ambient drone duo Stars of the Lid was formed in Austin, TX, by guitarists Brian McBride and Adam Wiltzie, the latter also a member of Windsor for the Derby as well as the longtime soundman for Bedhead. Debuting in 1994 with Music for Nitrous Oxide, the duo returned the following year with Gravitational Pull vs. the Desire for an Aquatic Life; signing to Kranky, Stars of the Lid next resurfaced in 1997 with the epic The Ballasted Orchestra. 1998's Per Aspera Ad Astra, a collaboration with painter Jon McCafferty, preceded the Sub Rosa release Avec Laudenum. Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid landed in 2001, with And Their Refinement of the Decline following in 2007. Both were double CDs. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Lovin' this
Indeed ambient music heals and forces peace of mind regardless of the state of mind.

Forget medicinal marijuana - go straight to the medicinal ambient music. It's not nearly as expensive! ;-)

Nice man! Wish you the best in your ambitions to fill this world with great music :D !
I am putting a lot of time into building a Drones station if anyone would like to listen or gain more exposure to this kind of music.
Peace,love and good vibes to all )))
I just wanted to say that I have listened to thousands of albums during my life and that Ballasted Orchestra is probably one of my top 10 of all time.
Absolutely love their work.
AFTER A HARD DAY'S WORG--THIS MUSIC,WITH A BEET OR TWO.

Great meditation sound.

It's all good, crowsnest, and this is nice stuff, but to say it stands up to Julie....wit h or By This River is a bit of a stretch... not to mention Sombre Reptiles'... oh, man, I'm feeling really old and nostalgic all at the same time...
Thank You Eno they have learned
Yea love Eno too, classic. This genre will never be 'mainstream' . Unfair to expect modern musicians to be groundbreaki n g too, as much of the old innovation was driven by technology and cultural shifts. Now... it's a game of mix and match. I think this stands up to anything Eno did to be honest.
love their work as well, of course it's nothing groundbreaki n g or even new... brian eno, you know... the 80-s, but that's where the avantgarde becomes mainstream, 30 years later, now everyone is up to it... awesome work, lovely
I love their work. They have become my go to ambient guys when I need to knuckle down and do some projects/pro g r a m m i n g .
We have assumed control. Submit.

I used to yearn for this music and would get little bits of it in old Genesis and Yes music. I'd like it to go on forever. Accept.

Sal, thanks for turning me on to this. It's incredible stuff.
All I know is that I can't stop listening to it.
It's okay I guess. If you like stuff that's wonderful.
Absolutely LOVE these guys!!!

Stars of the Lid is what they play in the waiting room for the Milky Way Galaxy.
Their vinyl is the sweetest. Digital sucks but will have to do at work.

lovely!!!!
Very good for meditation. Good book to read along these lines. "Spirit Guide" for enlightenmen t and for finding out who you really are in this Universe.
The sauce is right about this music.
This is what I listen to all day at work. This should be required in all workplaces.
Amazing stuff. highly recommended!
