Stars of the Lid
Today we’re listening to Stars of the Lid. They’re a duo from Austin, TX who made ambient recordings from 1995 to 2007. They have some of the best album and song titles in the game. They play soft synth chords and sustain them, so they dissolve slowly into one another, the overtones intermingling. When we say that this newsletter seeks music that creates an atmosphere of profundity, this is what we mean.
