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

There is so, so much we must become aware of to improve the quality of our lives which is all in our grasp if we can but respond, expanding and deepening our awareness and consciousnes s , going beyond all limits, fusing with the cosmos in the attainment of genuine peace - goodwill - and creative harmony, knowing no bounds, toward a safer - happier - more prosperous and peaceful world...

Essence is an integral Presence regarded as nondual… Synthesizing , the creative process is something which we can get in touch with and live out from our core, here-now, ad infinitum... forever striving to unify these two worlds -- the world of Being (unitive life, samadhi, nirvana) and the prosaic, practical everyday world (samsara: the endless cycles of birth, suffering, death, and rebirth, that have been inculcated into our consciousnes s , our very being) and molded our character structure.

Unity Consciousnes s - Inspiration comes from above as it descends transpersona l l y through the crown chakra: The Holy Spirit resounding, reverberatin g throughout the Cosmos...

Integrity is unity consciousnes s , the Unitive Life integrated & unified holistically , cohesively. - This must always be accepted receptively, quiescently at the depths of being in total communion w/ Being. Healing, inner-transf o r m a t i o n is the ultimate goal, is the way everything is evolving into... Amen.

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

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.

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
Report as inappropriate
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.
Report as inappropriate
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 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.
