Boomkat product review for:

stars of the lid - The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid

A new album by the Stars of The Lid always sends us off someplace else. This amazing double album features a six suite work cut over a double CD, featuring titles such as Requiem For Dying Mothers, Austin Texas Mental Hospital, Broken Harbors, Mullholland, Piano Aquieu, Ballad Of Distances and A Lovesong (For Cubs)+. Their usual minimal sound palette is expanded upon this time with the inclusion of strings, horns and piano in addition to guitars and field recordings. A personal innerspace that's relaxed, poised and breathtakingly beautiful. Highly Recommended.
