For the first time in more than 20 years back on vinyl.As the long drifting effects of tranqulized space lingers on, its addictive properties become clearer, in fact dangerously so. But thanks to the numb doctors at Kranky, another fix is in, as they reissue the second album from Texas grown sound poppies Stars Of The Lid just in time to calm any nerve hunger. Originally released on vinyl in 1996 in an edition of 709 copies by Sedimental Records. Loved and used by the bed-ridden from Prog to Illbient.
Their ability to create drifting shimmers of sound that veer from hushed, whispered soundscapes to disturbed crescendo's utilising nothing more than a couple of guitars, some basic effects pedals and whatever found sounds happen to be lying around has allowed them to progress slowly from one album to the next with the sort of intuitive, masterful command of minimalism that's quite hard to fathom in one sitting.
