Stars Of The Lid 'The Tired Sounds of..' 3xLP Reissue
ONE OF BEAR TREE'S ALBUMS OF THE YEAR, 2015
Nocturnal lullabye giants Stars of the Lid finds Brian McBride and Adam Wiltzie expanding their sound palette to include strings, horns and piano in addition to guitars and field recordings. "The Tired Sounds of..." shows a continued trend toward more overt melodic structures seen on their previous Avec Laudenum album.
Six suites stretch across six sides of vinyl combining atmosphere, texture and melody. Neo-psychedelia, contemporary classical, ambient, minimalist, maximalist, drug enhancer, drug substitute. Stars of the Lid are all these things. Stars of the Lid are none of these things. Stars of the Lid are not about outer space, they are about inner space.
